DIY: Beautiful Tree Lights for Holiday Decorating

Hello everyone!!! It’s Shari here and I’m really excited to share a simple but mighty pretty DIY project with you today!!

I just love making handmade projects for holiday decorating and this one is super simple. I’ve combined my love of Foil papers with the most genius die ever… the Tim Holtz Tree Light die. These can be made into luminaries or ornaments for your tree.

This die set has two sizes and cuts triangular trees with design cut outs on each side. Score lines are included to help you fold these into their shapes. And, there is a hole in the bottom so the finished tree can sit on top of an LED tea light as its base. Now isn’t that brilliant?

I’ve tried out a variety of papers, some have texture, some are smooth foil and I have also silver embossed a background image onto regular cardstock for completely different look. Tim Holtz just came out with some new Metallic Papers that would be gorgeous for this project, I’ve listed them below. To finish your trees off, you can use washi tape on the tea lights or paint them with a quick coat of Distress Brushed Pewter paint.

I also thought these would be great to hang on the Christmas tree as an ornament. You could position them to sit over cool touch bulbs on your tree to light them up. I pierced through the top of the tree and strung them with silver thread. Now I can’t wait to decorate the whole house!!
