illThese are some party lights I designed to be styled similar to those that were made in the 60's and 70's (picture of vintage lights included). I was looking to find something to make one of my rooms more fun and entertaining. The vintage lights can be hard to find and usually are fairly expensive when you do find them. Also those being blow molded plastic that is almost 50 years old they tend to be quite brittle. So I designed these lights to clip into an ordinary sting of clear C7 lights. Using the shade clip to hang the shade from the string of lights it makes it really easy to install and to change out shades if you want to.
Each shade was taking between 2-3hrs to print. They are roughly 4in tall and 3in in diameter. Print the shades using vase mode, but have your bottom layers set to 4. The shade clips will need support material, but it is very little and easy to remove.
