Video Tutorial:

Written Instruction:

Print and cut your template onto cardstock of desired colours.  Cut on solid lines and score on dashed lines.  Use a hole punch to help cut holes.

Step 1

Fold the bulb strip in half then push the folded end in to create the bulb shape.

Step 2

Fold along the score lines of the base piece before glueing it into a loop – making sure that the holes are aligned.

Step 3

After the glue dries on the base piece, pinch the sides to form a hexagonal opening.  Feed the end of the bulb strip into the base making sure to align the holes.

Step 4

Tape the end of your string so that the fibres do not fray when you thread your lights.  Push the string through all the holes of the lights – 20 lights make a string approximately 2.5 feet (76 cm) long.

Happy Crafting!
