25 Awesome Things To Do With String Lights… I SCREAMED When I Saw #22.

String lights are no longer strictly for Christmas front yards. They're very popular for both indoor and outdoor decor. You can hang them as an outside ceiling for an alternate starry night or you can drape them inside for a chic look. And the possibilities are endless to how you can use these lights. The best part -- you can achieve most of these projects while you're on a budget.

Some of the ideas below are for special occasions and others can be used all year round. Take a look at some of the projects to help get you started with whatever string lights you may already have laying around (or inspire you to buy new lights).
