Pimp your electric advent lights with washi

The advent lights diy story goes on and on!
This is a classic electrical lamp that many Swedish families have in their windows during December. Normally they come in a classic, red, white or just simply wood. The normal one is rather ugly but I guess I made this one so now even I can think about having one at home.
I just used some washi tape around the plastic candles (not on the lamps) and also on the base. Sometimes Washi doesn’t stick that good but then just use a coat of varnish on top and it will be great. To get the round shapes I just took a razor blade to cut of the excess. You can watch me do this DIY on TV4 here.
