I’ve been contemplating getting a set of flower fairy lights for quite some time now. But then I decided that making a set would be more fun 🙂
I knew that all I needed were a set of plain fairy lights and flowers. I could have bought pre-made fabric flowers that actually looked like the real thing, but I wanted to be a little more creative.
I then had to decide what to make the flowers out of… there were so many options! Paper? Fabric? and if so, what type?? – I very quickly decided that fabric was the way to go since I wanted these lights to last a little while.
The only fabric I could think of that would be stiff enough and allow enough light to pass through was tulle, so off I went to get some to experiment on.
As it turns out – SUCCESS! Tulle flower fairy lights are go! – So here I show you how you can make your own 🙂
Now repeat that as many time as you like. Place the flowers on all the lights or just a few to add some colour, either way, it looks pretty cute.
I tested them out on the staircase and I think they look pretty damn awesome. I bought 11 metres of fairy lights, so the possibilities of decoration are endless! Gotta love them tulle flowers.
I have an ulterior motive for creating these lights and you will see them in it’s final placement in my next home DIY post 🙂
UPDATE: If you want to have a look at what else you could use these fairy lights for have a squizz at one of my most recent projects here (DIY Christmas Wall Tree) and here (DIY Paper Flowers) and an inspirational board here (What to do with Fairy Lights) 🙂
