From designer Kristen Cunningham comes this great and EASY tutorial to make completely fabulous sea biscuit lights. She defines them as patio lights, but they’d look charming on a mantel–especially in the summertime when the fireplace isn’t being used–or in the winter when you’re dreaming of warm days on the beach.

Purchased sea biscuit shells (enough to cover each light on your string)
Hot glue gun and glue
1. Feed lights into the naturally-occurring holes in the back of the sea biscuits; hot glue into place.
2. Plug in lights and enjoy!
