Nothing transforms an unwelcoming room into an inviting one as quickly and effectively as fairy lights do. You’ll be amazed at the change a few twinkly LEDs can make!
Lights4Fun have simple strings of warm white lights for £2.99 and festive flashing ones in all the colours of the rainbow.
Pricier options can be found at The Fairy Light Company- their natural leaf lights will add rustic chic to your decor but cost £18 for twenty. One for the Christmas list?
It's possible to make your own: boil up leaves in a pan with half a cup of laundry detergent, leave them to simmer for about two hours, transfer them to a tub of cold water, then gently rub the outer layer off with a paintbrush. Leave the skeletons to dry for an hour or so before wrapping them around some plain LED lights using double sided tape and ribbon.Another idea is to find cheap lampshades and customise them with bows, buttons and your own print designs.
