Thanks to LEDs, lighting chains are more versatile than ever. Here are handy tips on how to make them a holiday hit in your home.

Let lighting chains shape your Christmas

Wrap an unused ladder in lights – suddenly it’s a showpiece. Collect them in bowl or lay them out as part of a table setting. The conveniently small bulbs and harmless warmth of IKEA lighting chains let your imagination run free.

Even simple DIY-crafts become wall-worthy when decorated with IKEA BLÖTSNÖ LED lighting chain.

Decoration with built-in lighting

If the sheer display of light isn’t enough, lighting chains are ideal for highlighting something else. Like your own piece of cardboard art (recycle an old IKEA flatpack).

Add more holiday magic by framing a mirror with IKEA LIVSÅR LED lighting chain.

A toolbox of cosiness

Use the fluffy balls of LIVSÅR to frame objects (like a mirror) or hang them to light up a dark corner. Their yellow warm glow transforms the mood wherever it goes.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
