Learn how to make lights out of plastic cups, fabric scraps and Mod Podge
Making lights from household items is not only a great way to make your bedroom sparkle, but it's also the perfect time to clear out your craft supplies bin.

Drape your handmade lights over the headboard, run them down the banister or string them across the patio for fun, summery home decor.
