Rope Lighting is in fashion nowadays


Hello world,
The last few months I used to work a lot, so there was no time for DIYs. However, I managed to find some to create a rope lighting for my living room. It was really easy, fast and cheap to do.

What will you need?

  1.  2 meters thick rope. (2 euros)
  2.  2 meters aluminum pipe (3 euros)
  3.  5 meters electric cable (1 euro)
  4.  1 plug with on/off (2 euros)
  5.  1 ntoui (1 euro)
  6.  1 lamp (1 euro)

Total money: 10 euros
Total time: 1 hour
Experience Level: Medium

Step 1) Buy everything

Step 2) Insert the cable inside the pipe
