4. Spray-painted lights 

This year, ditch the store-bought holiday decorations and make your own! It’s easy to create beautiful and unique lights using nothing more than spray paint and some old light bulbs. You’ll need clear or white lights, heat-safe spray paint in festive colors, painter’s tape, and a piece of cardboard or newspaper.
