Prima Lights: DIY Circles and Hearts Garland with Shari Carroll


Did you know that Simon Says Stamp has battery operated light sets from Prima in the store?? I was so excited when I saw these and had to try them. Since they are LED, they stay cool to the touch so you can decorate them however you’d like!

I did a couple garlands to go with my set of lights, the first one being die cut circles. I used the Stitched Circles dies and used 5 tones of papers that go well together. Once I had all my circles die cut, I used my sewing machine to stitch them together.

Next, I die cut some hearts from Prima papers that coordinate with the circles so I can use both garlands together. I used a Crop-O-Dile to punch holes in the hearts , then strung them onto twine.

These lights are perfect for areas without a power supply or outdoor decorating. I’ve shot a video of how they look with and without the garland. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

Thanks for coming by today, hope you have a fantastic weekend!!

  1. This is SO GREAT! We actually have a camp, on a river but no power. (I do a LOT of colouring there and it is VERY relaxing.) This would look amazing there for ambiance! Thanks for sharing such a cool idea, Shari!

  2. Love these lights, Shari! And your banners are the perfect compliment for them. I love to hang lights in my arched window above my kitchen sink.

  3. That is just the cutest garland. I’m imagining all the different ways to use those lights. Really great. Thanks so much. Didn’t know they were available at SSS.

  4. What a fun and awesome idea. I love little lights! There’s so many new products and tips to see! Thank you!

  5. Oh, these are so cute and would be adorable for a party! My five year old would love a magical princess party with these strung around the room!

  6. Very lovely project! Didn’t know that Prima has these lights and that SSS carries them. Now I do!

  7. Summer is coming. Cute light strings will be needed. I love this project. I’m off to check the store. Thanks for the video.

  8. The lights are really cute, not the usual bare LED that one normally gets with a battery operated set. Great idea with the garland, thanks!
