When I first came across this DIY lighting that used birch, I was immediately intrigued. For one, I love birch, especially at weddings. It's light, airy and goes with most pallets. So when I saw just how easy it was to assemble, I loved it even more!
In this particular photo, it looks like they used a string of lights found at a home store, or lighting outlet. The actual light itself is not attached directly to the main cord, but rather to a smaller wire, which is then attached.
If I had a bride using this idea with us, here is what I would use. I would gather tin cans with labels peeled, birch bark, and bulb lights. I would cut out a small hole the bottom of the tin can, and attach the base of the bulb lights, and then screw the bulbs in, so they can not come loose. I would wrap and glue the birch to the tin can. Hang and string. The reason I would use the tin can is because lights can get hot, and this way the birch, which is sometimes as thin as paper, will not overheat.
Love this easy DIY light that you can make on your own!
