2. LED Veil

You will need about 5 to 10 veil or tulle material cloth strips equal to your window curtain length, it can be plain or patterned. 
Also, yellow light LED strings based on the width of the window. 
Make place for the veils to hang like curtains trailed with light and fit in the window rod like you do for any other curtain. 
Take each LED string and gently keep twisting the string across casually over the veil pieces and continue till the last one. 
In the end, switch off all the other lights and plug in the LED string to the socket and switch on the lights. It gives a paradise effect to the room. Note: You can use other coloured lights as well.
3. Paper Candles

Arrange a few LED candles, chart papers, double sided tape and take any old vase or little spread out glasses. 
Cut the paper into different designs like leaves, flowers their stems, be careful that you don’t cut them off too much or simply make many tiny holes all over. 
Then, take double sided tape and stick the paper from one end to the other. 
Take the glass and keep one candle inside, take the paper and put it across the glass.
Light the candle and you will see the magic.
Suggested LED candles are basically for safety purpose
