I have been batting around this idea and I think I finally figured it out.
So here is how you can personalize your twinkle lights.
You will need:
Small white paper dollies
Acrylic Paint- I used red and blue for the 4th Of July
Two paint brushes smallish
A old cup or bowl so you can mix water with acrylic paint
A hole punch
A string of lights
Now squeeze a nice amount of acrylic paint into old cup or bowl
Pour some water in the paint bowl to dilute the acryilc paint.
Mix water and paint until you get the color you want.
Now brush the color around the edges of the dollie and let dry.
In my opinion the sloppier the better.
Once they are dry fold in half and punch two holes in the center
so the dollie will fit over the light bulb.
Now I placed two dollies, red and blue, on top of each other.
This way there is more fluff and fun happening on each light.
When you are done pinching the dollies together, slip them over each light bulb and
squeeze and twist them on the stem of the bulb this way they will stay in place.
And you are done. Enjoy.
