Fairy lights are big this time of year. Whether you’re feeling festive or not, this statement way of decorating the home is instantly warming and heartfelt. You can just see the homes along the streets lit up from within which is always a comfortable feeling as the days grow shorter and gloomier. I wanted to showcase a few ideas of how to use them in a way that can accentuate your spaces and pieces, illuminating them, literally.

Wrapping your lights around plants and twigs create a rustic look to the space, and giving the lights an almost free spirit in the way they are assembled according to nature.

Framing your windows would be the obvious choice, however you could try framing absolutely anything. How about mirrors, staircases or even cabinets. Pick the most dainty lights you can find for this one.

Trapping the lights in terrariums and lanterns are  great for if you want to keep it subtle. There are endless options of this technique which I love.



Are you feeling festive yet?
