In skillful hands even a plain empty milk carton can be converted into an original decorative object. From today’s DIY you’ll find out how to make charming New Year light houses in just 3 steps.
During Christmas and New Year holidays magical atmosphere is what we need and strive for. Some imagination and a little time, and your house will be lit by these charming houses.
Creating such a wonderful accessory is pretty quick and easy. What you need is:
- empty milk or juice cartons (of any color)
- a pencil
- a ruler
- Christmas lights
- a box cutter
- white acrylic paint
So, step 1 is painting the cartons. Please, note that in order to paint over original package printing a few layers of paint have to be applied.
Take some time for the paint to completely dry and move on to step 2. Here you’ll need a pencil and a ruler to draw the windows. Feel free to use any possible shapes and quantities depending on your architectural preferences.
Step 3 – as soon as the creative process is over, cut out the windows and a small hole in the back wall of the house to insert the Christmas lights.
That’s it! Just as we promised – the workshop is extremely simple. Should you have more free time, try to create your own village of light houses – they look so magical when the lights are low!
