The sign above is pretty fancy pants indeed but a simple version can be made in a
couple of hours with nothing more than a sheet of mdf, a drill, fairy lights and a good
dose of patience. Check out how to make one here
Use fairy lights to tell your love story or get guests to pin up their photobooth strips
as an alternative guest book idea.
Create an intimate outdoor space using solar fairy lights (no need to plug in!)
Decorate a feature prop or sign for a sweet and subtle light display.
Trees are your friends, Show them you love them by making the light up. For a fab
effect decorate a group of trees together rather than random ones in different areas.
When it comes to fairy light displays on a large-scale you have two options. Hire from
an events or styling company OR buy bulk in the Christmas sales. I would go the former
if doing a display like above, but for a few panels you will find dirt cheap fairy lights at
The Warehouse post-Christmas!
Mix your fairy lights with ribbon to create a marquee effect (no for the impatient!)
These little wire fairy lights bring mason and bell jars to life and would look great on
the tables or as path lights.
A fairy light chandelier has been on my to do a list for a while now! The perfect solution
for indoor/outdoor lighting, the above can be achieved with a spray painted hula hoop
and some electrical tape! Another way to rock this look is by recycling a lamp frame or
hanging light fixture (remove the electrics first!) Find out how to make it here.
