Winter Wonderland Light{Petites Passions}

I am Myric from Petites Passions where I document all my little passions like DIY arts and crafts and favorite recipes. I am so privileged to be a guest poster here at The CSI Project. I have seen wonderful featured projects which inspired me to create. I am very honored to be invited to give a tutorial for winter craft and decor theme happening here at CSI Project.
Winter holds a special place in my heart. It is the season when I married the man who rocked my world! Making this project gave a nostalgic feeling of my wedding.


With all the materials available around the house plus my leftovers last Christmas, I decided to make

What I love about dryer sheet is, it very cheap (well, after drying the clothes), but also a good substitute for fabric lace or ruffles.

1. First, I cut them into strips. 1 1/2 inches is fine.
2. I made a running stitches.
3. Pull it down to create ruffles.
4. ….until you made enough strips to make flower petals. Make as many as you can.

I stuffed my saved gift wraps from last Christmas into a white garbage bag and made a ball as big as volleyball. I taped it around to secure a ball shape. Then, I wrapped it with sparkly snowflake ribbon.

* Like I said, Christmas lights is optional. I just love the effect that the Christmas lights gives.


* Wrap the ball inside a tulle loosely like it is in a small sack.
* Collect a handful of loose tulle and tie it with a rubber band. Do this around the ball until there are no loose fabric left. White rubber band is better. I just happen to have black that time.
*The fun part is to cut the tip and stretch it to make a tulle flower effect. It’s like giving a haircut!

Time to get your dryer sheets flower and glue them on gaps between the tulle flowers using hot glue, (also to cover-up the visible Christmas light wires).

I hot glued furniture nails as a decorative accent and as center of the flowers.

I just love snowflake ornaments. I used them as hanging embellishments for this lantern that gave a snowfall effect. 
I made a ring out of metal wire and wrapped it with white ribbon to make it invisible when I attached it to the bottom of lantern by sewing it on. I then tied the ornaments with strings on to the ring. The strings must be inconsistent in length.
You are now ready to hang your lantern! Enjoy it day…
….and night 🙂
I hope this project inspired you to create something beautiful out of recycled things.

    I was afraid of that idea too that it could be a fire hazard. I asked my husband first if this is a fire hazard before making it. My husband is someone concerned with safety wasn’t alarmed with the idea. I wrapped it in fabric ribbon first before I wrap it with lights so it is not exposed to plastic and papers. Safety wise, I guess you can use LED lights with as little amount of bulbs and choose lights that are tested safe. I keep mine lit while we are awake and turn it off before we go to bed, however, you can enjoy it too without lights to be very safe 😉

    I love it and it would be a perfect night light for my daughters room. I am wondering though, do the lights get hot enough for this to be a fire hazard?

  5. Pretty much love everything about this!! Love that its made from recycled products and love how lovely it turned out!
