5 of our favourite fairy light hacks

If you’ve read one of our blogs before then it will come as no surprise to hear that we’ve been spending most of our days lost in our Pinterest feed.

Between the rustic wedding ideas and home lighting inspiration we just can’t look away, but recently something else has been catching our eye! We’ve been drawn to all the amazing DIYs people have done with their fairy lights, maybe it’s because the weather has been less than summery but looking at all of these DIYs just made us want to stay in with our glue gun. If you’ve had any similar feelings then keep reading because we’re going to share some of the best fairy light DIYs Pinterest has to offer.
