Now that Christmas is upon us, we’re looking for ways to brighten up our festive decorations without pulling on our purse strings.
A little goes a long way and fairy lights do just that – they are the ultimate Christmas decorating tool and can transform decorative vignettes, mantlepieces, driftwood and stairwells into a twinkly wonderland.
Wrap anything in fairy lights! Show off a new gift or jazz up an old one.
This rope lighting looks as good around the branch of this tree as it does along a verandah railing - this one throw a lot of light for better visibility.
Dress up a simple star decoration, handmade with twigs.
A little sprig here and there from the Christmas tree, a string of battery-operated fairy lights and you have a portable organic table centrepiece, a warm welcome at your front door, or an attractive outdoor focal point.
A great excuse to bring out your favourite pieces and style them up with festive flair.
Rather than keeping things too formal, create a relaxed display and go with the flow of the fairy lights - buy a couple of lengths and use them together for a show-stopping display.
The beauty of batteries - these small strands can have the battery pack tucked away to set a festive glow to any vignette, without the need to run ugly cords everywhere.
