Here is my latest creation. I was suddenly inspired to poke holes in the back of a canvas and stick a string of white Christmas lights through. I painted the back of the canvas black because too much light was showing through and I left the front plain. I absolutely love the glow it puts off in my living room, and Zane likes it too!
EDIT: The holes are poked with a really thick nail. Then the lights are each pressed through and they hold in there pretty tight. Then I gathered up the string and mashed it into a bundle, laid thick paper over it, and taped it to the back of the canvas.
Here is my kitty and my art project:
