I used casings from shotgun shells (after they had been used to shoot those poor innocent deer) to create a festive garland of lights. I drilled holes in the open end and used jute to tie the casing to each light. The shells come in many colors, I have found green, red, yellow, silver. They are super easy and go well with an outdoor themed room.

I thought those things were pretty thick, so are the lights inside the tubes? Curiosity...It's what makes us junkers in the first place... I ask a lot of questions...Georgia
