Strand of lights

To make your teen's space feel one-of-a-kind, we suggest decking his or her bedroom walls with these twinkling eye-catching strands. Hung here, there and everywhere, taped twilight flowers are fun and easy to make.

  • Cut four, five-inch sections of Expressions Magic™ Tape*.


  • Fold three tape sections by a third, leaving approximately half an inch of sticky tape exposed. This creates a tape petal with a sticky base.


  • Apply your three tape petals around the base of each individual light bulb. Wrap the fourth section of tape around the base to secure the petals.


  • To create your fringe, working lengthwise, snip each petal in half until you reach the base of your light bulb.
