I’m sure I’m not the only one who collects useless vacation crap. For years, my junk of choice was shot glasses. I bought one on every vacation I went on until I realized how terribly tacky dozens of shot glasses looked on my shelf. But as tacky as they looked, I couldn’t bear to throw them out. So here’s my DIY project for useless junk, which added up to approximately 30 shot glasses.
Start by placing the end of the LED string on the bottom and gently laying the shot glasses on their side in all directions. To get an extra burst of colorful light, I inserted some of the lights inside the shot glasses with the prettiest colors. Pile them up and you’re done! I placed mine on a shelf and it currently serves dual purposes – ambient light and a book end.

I also like to grab business cards from every restaurant I eat at, so I’m in the process of dreaming up an new DIY project to take care of that mess as well. More on that soon! Happy DIY-ing!
