What you'll need:
- Utility knife
- Outdoor string lights
- Gusseted flat-bottom bags, 5 by 9 3/4 inches
- 1 1/2-inch-wide ribbon
- Masking or paper tape
1. Use a utility knife to make a slit through both sides of a bag, 2 inches from the top.
2. Open the bag; cut an X in the bottom center. Slip a 2-foot length of ribbon through the slits, and knot it.
3. Push a bulb through the X, so the socket is fully inside. Use masking or paper tape to seal in the wire and socket. Continue until all bulbs are covered.
