DIY Tuesdays: Flower Fairy Lights
I’ve been browsing for outdoor wedding decor and I happened stumbled across this easy DIY project from Apartment Therapy. So cute for a summer wedding!
What you’ll need:
- Fairy lights (Christmas lights)
- Vellum paper in your wedding colors
Here’s my simplified version of the project:
Step 1: Cut 5 inch squares of vellum paper. Fold paper square in half diagonally to form a triangle.
Step 2: Fold the left and right corners up to meet at the center, forming a diamond shape. Fold in half to form a small triangle.
Step 3: Cut curves along the open edges to form a heart-shaped top and create the petal effect (see my photo below). You can also try cutting different shapes to create different flowers. I drew a heart on my triangle to illustrate how big the heart is. Don’t mind my drawing skills.
Step 4: Snip the tip of the bottom of the triangle – remember to cut small enough that it won’t fall off the lights but wide enough so you can pass through each fairy light.
Although it is unlikely that these tiny lights will catch on fire, you don’t want to worry about that on your wedding day! Use LED fairy lights instead of standard ones. AT Disclaimer:“While vellum paper is a lot less flammable than ordinary paper, donâ€™t leave the lights on unattended.”
