If you’ve taken a peek at Pinterest recently, you’ve probably seen one trend that’s been popping up left, right, and center: fairy lights. Fairy lights are tiny string lights usually on a thin, copper wire with small, bright bulbs, and they are fabulous. They make just about anything look magical and can be thrown into more DIYs than you might imagine! Here are 17 creative ways to incorporate fairy lights into some amazing projects.
1. String Picture Display
Got some Polaroids of your family or your squad that you want to display? Stringing fairy lights across a wall is an unexpected way to display pictures by clipping them along the lights!
2. Mason Jar Lights
Mason jars are a fool-proof way to jazz up any room, but fill them with fairy lights and hang them on some repurposed wood and you have the rustic decor of our dreams.
3. Lighted Mirror
Your reflection just got a lot more magical. You can drape fairy lights over just about anything to take most objects from bland to bright, and your full-length mirror is no different.
4. Branch Decor
If you’re all about that rustic chic look, then you know that the best piece of decor is right in your backyard: branches. Whether they’re being hung from the ceiling or covered in spay paint, branches are a simple and cheap way to up your decor.
Take things a step further by wrapping branches in fairy lights to make these basic pieces shine.
5. DIY Lighted Chandelier
The great thing about fairy lights is that they can be used to decorate inside or outside, as this DIY proves. This homemade chandelier is easy to make with just a few simple materials, and it can light up a dining room or an outside event.
6. Candle Accent
Most people probably think the last thing that needs a string of fairy lights is a candle, but you might be surprised. Wrapping a string of copper lights around a candle (whether it’s real or fake) is a great way to accessorize a plain accent piece.
