They are beautiful, but I am also worried about the fire risk...

hey everyone, thanks for all the nice comments.  Cheesy

About the safety thing, I made it this afternoon (around 4-5pm) and plugged it in immediately and have left it on since then till now (1:22am) and nothing has happened yet. I wouldn't leave them unattended though so do be careful, like don't leave them on and go to bed. My lights are indoor/outdoor lights if that's any help.  Smiley

Oh yeah, this project is very cheap to do at this time of the year because christmas lights are on sale. I got my lights for $2 at ACMoore and I know target has 100ct mini lights for $2 also. For pink lights (or purple/red/blue) check online or at lighting stores (if you're in NYC go to soho). Those were much more expensive.

Wow, great idea! Funny, since I JUST bought a bunch of tiny flower lei's from a dollar store, but I just didn't know what to do with them.
Nice job. Smiley

I love this idea! I too would be concerned about the fire hazard but as long as you don't leave them on all the time I think it's okay. I think you can actually buy lights that have an automatic off if the lights get too hot. Great project!

Hmmmm... I'm thinking the new LED mini-lights would be perfect for this, since they don't get nearly as hot as standard bulbs.  They're more expensive, granted, but they're also gentler on the electricity bill in the long run.

Jesus saves, Gretzky scores. The workers slave, the rich get more, one wrong move and we risk the cup. so play the man, not the puck!

Very cute! I might have to do that in my room at home since it's probably illegal here in the dorm.  Smiley
