The lights on Regent Street are so pretty this year – and very simple too, all in white fairy light magic.
It reminded me that Millennials and Gen. Xers have been using them to add a touch of magic to their homes for a good few years now.
So maybe it’s time to get creative with the magic of fairy lights – for Christmas and beyond. Here are some ideas to get you started.
A string of lights in a child’s bedroom can give just the little sparkle of light they need to feel secure in bed.
And adults will also enjoy a little romance in the bedroom too.
I like this idea of throwing a string of lights under a table to act as a sort of up-lighter. Great for Christmas but also fun through all the winter months.
Here’s another idea which lasts all year long – hand your Christmas cards of the wire and then change them for your favourite photos in the New Year.
Say it in fairy lights – great way to drop a hint to your loved one!
Or brighten up a rainy day.
You could go one further and make a branch chandelier.
And here’s another way to light up your life – arrange strings of LED lights in any container which catches your fancy.
Glass jars are fashionable it seems, these ones are described as Mason Jar Luminaries – jam jars could look just as pretty.
That should keep you going – I am sure you can think of a thousand ways of using these bright spots of light – and remember a fairy light is not just for Christmas.
