This one was a great project. My fav Martha did something similar in the December issue of Living. My Honey and I made it together, so that was even more special. First, you'll need a houla hoop or a piece of flexible copper plumbing pipe. We taped the pipe into a circle. Then took bamboo garden stakes and zip tied them to the pipe. Then we zip tied the lights onto the pipe and the bamboo. We used 2 strands. You'll need a lot of zip ties. Then plug in. It took us about 1 hour to make.
