Remember this awesome widely-circulated Pinterest image? I loved it and we made some similar lights for our wedding in our color, lime green. We had a "wedding stuffmaking" party where some people tore fabric, some tied it to lights, some helped with the invitations, and so on. The lights were BEAUTIFUL.

Now it's the holidays, and we celebrate Christmas. I was sad at the thought of taking apart our beautiful light strands to turn back into icicle lights (plus, it sounded like a lot of work), so I decided since they were green I'd use them for our holiday lights anyhow!

We've gotten TONS of compliments from the neighbors already… and little do they know that these lights, which we'll likely use for many holiday seasons to come, were part of our wedding decor! Save money, recycle, WIN!

We'd LOVE to see more of your repurposed wedding decor, that means we need YOU to submit 'em to us!
