So, this took me too long to make, sometimes I lack motivation.
But, I had these Christmas lights and this really cool coffee paper.
And these lights were born.
...WAIT! WHAT?! Coffee paper? Yep, paper made entirely of coffee.
So, you make some Japanese Water Balloons, really simple, sometimes frustrating.
Then stick them on the lights.   Smiley

I drew all the patterned ones, dyed some with diluted food coloring, and some I covered in tacky glue and glittered (my favorites).

I couldn't believe that such a thing existed, but when I saw it, I knew I had to order some. I got mine from http://www.ecopaper.com/coffee-paper-100-sheet-box.

It's just like normal computer paper (No scent or anything), with a flew flecks in it that have a sheen, but so worth it.   Cheesy

I love these.  They turned out great.  I've bookmarked this in hopes that I can make them with other types of paper.  Love these.
