They’re sparkly, magical and luminescent. Traditionally just pulled out at Christmas, but why not utilise them all year round with these great ideas and inspiration for using your fairy lights.

Ad – I am working with Koopower and their battery operated fairy lights, which can be used indoor or outdoors. They are sturdy and reliable, perfect for these ideas and projects for your fairy lights. The best thing is they come with a timer, and loads of different settings, so you can set it and forget it.

1. Create a bed canopy with lights

Make a fake fire for the kids when they have a sleepover, and light up with fairy lights. It’s very effective, mine love it.

10. Light up your Teepee

Get a simple teepee and place over their bed or a toy tent, and string with fairy lights.

11. Jazz up your photography

Use fairy lights in your photographs, play with perspective. The closer to the camera the more blurry they will be, and also further away. Have a go and see what different focus options you can achieve.
