Affordable Fairy Lights

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

If you have ever watched any of my older videos, when I was recording in my boudoir, you will know that I am a HUGE fan of fairy lights. We have them in our room, Baby Glitter's room, the hallway and the lounge all year round. Come Christmas time and the house is lit up better than ... well, a very well lit thing!


Whilst I was mooching round pinterest I found some gorgeous floral fairy lights but the shop that sold them was out of stock- booo.

Never one to give up, I turned to my faithful friend, ebay. I found these gooorrgeous rose fairy lights for £6.99. They are 3 metres long so you'll get a good length (minds out of gutters please) and they come in 6 glowy colours. I can't tell you how much these kind of things excite me.


When Baby Glitter grows out of her cot (thinking ahead a bit I know) I'm planning on making that little corner of the room a reading nook with cushions, blankets and twinkle lights. For now though, I have bought some to drape round her book shelves.

To me, there is something really magical about fairy lights. They can add the finishing touch to any room

What do you think? Are you fanatical for fairy lights?

Toodlepip!

  4. I love them, but Nathan hates them :( He doesn't like anything remotely feminine. I just end up buying stuff and slowly add things to our rooms to make them nice and girly lol xx

  16. These look gorgeous. Odd question but do you (or anyone else) have any tips for fixing fairy lights? I have this amazing set from a Garden Centre, and only four work on the end now. I know the circuit's probably gone but I can't bear to part with them! X

  21. ive been looking for some fairy lights for my room at uni next year for ages. they even featured on my wishlist (http://www.lifeandstyleofemily.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/wish-list.html) but all the ones i found were really expensive. these are much more affordable and just as nice so might have to snap some up before they sell out!

  22. These are lovely! I want some to hang some on my bed :)

  24. I'm a lover of fairy lights too :), they're just so pretty and add a lovely touch to any room. I've always wanted some white/cream flower lights to hang on my bed but need to get a new bed frame first so may consider getting these once I have my new frame :) xx

  26. I love fairy lights! I think they make any room just suddenly seem a lot warmer and a lot more cosey. I have some white rose ones in my room, and they give off a really yellowy-greeny colour- which I love. I don't know where they are from as they were a Christmas gift but I think they were fairly cheap!

  27. Fairy lights are very much a girl thing I think as hubby hates them! I think they make a room look super cosy and much more welcoming. Those rose ones are lovely and such a great bargain.

  47. Everyone loves fairy lights, and they are relatively cheap to run, especially the newer LED lights, so here are some great ideas on how you can enjoy fairy lights all year round, not just at Christmas.
