We are always looking to add a little DIY to our Holiday decorations and this pretty origami box project is perfectly suited to sprucing up your indoor string lights. We used two sizes of square origami papers in three different colors to make these little origami boxes. Origami paper is really easy to find in most good craft stores or online. You can buy it in literally any color you want as well as pretty patterned papers which we think would be gorgeous for this project! 

To make an origami box for your string lights, go ahead and follow our simple tutorial below. It’s an easy step-by-step process but your finished product will benefit from a little accuracy, so try to fold with care. Once you have made as many boxes as you need, you can gently pop the bulbs through the top of each box along your string of lights. Hang them from your tree, in the window or wrap them around a painted branch like we have below. 

We’d love to see how you use your origami box string lights – share your pictures with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #DIYDreamingWithLia and we will share our faves. We look forward to seeing your handiwork! Enjoy! ~ Lia
