Finding daily inspiration on the internet isn't that hard, there are thousands of websites that feature the most awesome projects. Yet one of those websites is my absolute favorite: A Beautiful Mess. They gave me this great idea to make a giant ice crystal marquee! If you, like me, are sad that all the christmas lights are taken down by now, here's a piece of decor that is fit to stay all winter! The DIY used to make this beautiful statement decoration is this one.

I thought this was so stunning, I just had to make one myself.

What you need:
- jig saw
- drill
- wood board
- lights
- duct tape

Here's how I made this Ice Crystal:

Take a large enough wood board and use a jigsaw to form the ice crystal.
Use a drill to make holes for the lights.

Paint the crystal white, multiple layers are recommended.

Take your lights and put one in every hole.
Use duct tape to hold the wires in place on the back of the ice crystal.
I used regular lights, and fitted plastic flowers over them for this beautiful effect.

Pretty right?

Love, Laetitia
