Alternative Christmas Lights

I love re purposing, taking an object that is so well ingrained as one thing and turning it in to another. Take for instance Christmas lights, known for trimming the tree and decorating our homes. Here are some other ideas from Apartment Therapy:

Brilliant and beautiful. These branches are transformed with shiny balls and ambient light.

These tube lights look like a modern art installation. Love the bathroom placement.

Can't afford a new light fixture? Disguise it with layers of lights. Delightful.

A little canvas and lights peeping through goes a long way.

My fave. A modern take on the Christmas tree. The only problem is you don't get that wonderful smell.
