Decorating with fairy lights...

Sometimes it is not always possible for people to decorate their home or apartments with big Christmas trees. Perhaps people are spending Christmas away from home and only need to decorate on a small scale. I think fairy lights are a great way of adding a festive glow and cheer to a room without having to fork out on huge trees or ornaments. Here are a few of my favourite pictures all featuring fairy lights...

Add interest to a fireplace with balls intertwined with lights...


Surround your vintage pictures and frames with fairy lights...


Pile the lights into coloured vases and  jewelled toned glasses for a festive glow at night...



Make a decorative display on a side table...


Love the letters lit up with lights...


If you have an overhead centerpiece decorate with a wreath and lights for a softer glow...

All of the above ideas could be used in any size room at Christmas. I think everyone loves the magic of twinkling lights  and they add a soft cosy vibe to every room!  Battery operated ones are available in most hardware stores or use regular ones for tables near sockets.  Happy decorating:)

  17. Yes, there's so much you can do with fairy lights. We call them white lights here, and sometimes they adorn back yard patios all year long. Just love them.
