hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone has some ideas or links for what I can do with a string of blue christmas lights! moving into a new place in a few weeks and I've been spending all of my time crafting and working on interior decorating projects, and I really want a cute, original string of lights over my bed in place of a lamp. anyone have any good ideas?

Here's a project I just made the other day. It's in my room and I like how the paper covers have lessened the intensity of the blue L.E.D.s.
It's an easy project, look up a tutorial for an origami water bomb, get some colorful origami paper, and there you have it.

Octozooks that looks awesome!
You could also use cupcake liners as little shades, or bunch them up and feed them through the top of a mason jar to create a pendant type light.

I'd love to do something like cupcake liners but is it safe to have paper on hot lights??

well you won't leave the house with the lights on right? but the paper sits above the little bulb it should be touching the plastic part.

I can't imagine cupcake liners would be much different than Japanese paper lanterns, as long as the bulbs aren't touching the paper it should be fine.  They're meant to go in the oven at high temps.  There are also those foil cupcake liners, but you still wouldn't want those touching the bulb either I would guess.
