Yea not so cute. So I decided to spruce them up a bit. I went digging in my craft cabinet for anything I had that was orange or black. I came up with some fabric scraps, ribbon, and tulle.
So then I cut strips out of everything using my handy tip I described in this post.
And then I just started tying everything around the wire of the lights in random patterns until most of the wire was covered and I was satisfied. It turned out so cute and pretty! And the best part is it even looks great in the day time when the lights aren't on.
