I bought three sets of Fairy lights last this Christmas. And it’s now February and I still haven’t taken them down. I love them. They operate off electric power but because they are LED it doesn’t cost much AND I don’t have to buy batteries. In the evenings I tuck the kids in bed, turn off the the main lights and just peace out with only my fairy lights twinkling on the ceiling. It’s magical and I intend to keep them up for the rest of the year.
I have had a few comments like, “Oh, your Christmas lights are still up?”. It’s never a question. More of a statement. Then a look.
But I don’t care. Fairy Lights=Peace. And at less than $10 a set, it’s the cheapest way I know of making an entire room feel like a spa.
12 Cheap but Breathtakingly Beautiful DIY Fairy Light Decor Ideas for every room in the House
1. String Light Photo Wall
We went on holiday last year and spent the night at a friends house. Her teenage daughter kindly gave up her room for our family. Now out of the entire holiday the thing that I remembered most was the photo display she had made in her room. She had strung a set of fairy lights and pegged small Polaroid pictures to the string and then run them across her ceiling. It was beautiful. I will most definitely be doing this in at least one of our bedrooms this year.
