Measure and Cut Elastic
Measure the elastic around the base of one bulb on your LED light strand. It should wrap around and overlap 1/8". Use this piece as a pattern to cut enough elastic sections for each light bulb on the light string.
Glue Ribbon to Elastic Strips
Hot glue 5-7 strips of the sheer ribbon onto each elastic piece. Cover the whole strip of elastic with the ribbon pieces. Tip: Attach ribbon pieces in different lengths, or trim the ribbons after attaching to elastic.
Connect Ends of Elastic Strips
Turn the elastic over and put a small dot a hot glue on one end. Glue both sides of the elastic together, creating a circle. Repeat with remaining ribbon clusters.
