I brought fairy lights a few months ago, with the intention of hanging them around my bed/room. It was only when they arrived that my brain finally clicked that i have no where around my bed to hang them because of having a solid leather headboard.
I saw various different ideas on Pinterest of how i could hang them in my room including fixing them to the ceiling and fixing them to the curtains, however neither of these were feasible for me. I then decided to give this idea a try – hanging princess lights.
I was a little dubious at how my efforts were going to end up at first, however i absolutely love it – it’s perfect for film watching and nights in.
What i used….
It actually only cost £9.50 to make
- Fairy lights – two meters – £6
- Hula Hoop – £2
- Decorated diamante string – two meters – £1
- Two small hooks – £0.50
What i did…
I nailed the two hooks into my ceiling. I then wrapped the fairy lights around the hula hoop. Once i had finished wrapping all the lights around the hoop i attached the diamante string in four places on the hoop so it would equally balance once i hanged it on the hooks.
I then draped the remaining fairy lights down the side of my curtain rail to ensure i had left enough room to get to the plug. Finally i hung the string onto the hooks ensuring the weight was spread equally.
It took me approximately half an hour to complete and i’m soooo glad i bothered to do it. I can’t wait for winter now to spend all my dark evenings in bed wrapped up!
I actually really enjoyed doing some DIY for once – if you have any questions on how i did it, feel free to leave them below.
