I got the idea and a flower-stencil from a book a long time ago, I think maybe it was a Michael's Craft book. 
I finally took the time and made it for my sister for Christmas.
Anyways, the flowers are hand stenciled then cut from velum paper from the craft store.  Since it is a 50 light string I cut 100 flowers so that I could overlap different sizes/shapes/colors. 
It took me many hours, but the completed project is beautiful.  I wish I took better pictures before I gave them to her, but I finished them like two days before Christmas day.  Smiley

Here is a close up with them turned on, sorry the quality isn't too good, doesn't do it justice.

That is so gorgeous! I love the variety of colours.

I have a question, though. Would this not be a bit of a fire hazard?  Undecided

I'm also pretty curious about the fire safety thing. It's really pretty and I want to make one for my sister's birthday (she loves tropical things), but I'm not too sure what the best material would be. Has your sister noticed any problems with them when leaving the lights on for long periods of time?

Never give your reasons, for your judgement will probably be right, but your reasons almost certainly will be wrong.

those are cute!
I want some!
I read something about making origami balloon type things and putting them over some christmas lights but the whole fire safety thing is important..
