Now we know you all get excited about decorating your homes for birthdays and Christmas but what about the rest of the year?
We’ve got the perfect excuse and idea for how you can decorate your home this spring… Easter!! If that sounds interesting, keep reading for our step-by-step guide showing how you can make these adorable Easter inspired feather fairy lights.
Below you will find a list of everything you need, it’s not the longest list but for a quick and easy Easter DIY, isn’t that the point?
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Fairy lights
- Feathers (any colour)
- Glue (We chose to use a hot glue gun)
Now you have everything you need for this DIY project you can [ahem] spring into action and start making it (see what we did there?).
Firstly all you have to do is take your fairy lights and lay them out on a flat protected/covered surface. We chose these battery powered ones as we wanted to be able to place them anywhere we wanted, but you can use any that you want. We also decided that clear cable was the best fit for our feathers but if your colours are different or you’re not going for an Easter/spring theme like us, then feel free to pick a cable colour to match your look.
This is where things can get a bit messy: you need to take your feathers and your glue gun (or whatever adhesive you’ve chosen to use) and start gluing. We put a feather on each side of the light so that the light was covered but would still shine through.
Now leave these to dry for as long as recommended by the adhesive you used. Ours didn’t take very long to dry so we were able to admire our work pretty quickly.
You could leave your lights like this, plain feather lights look amazing in bedrooms but we had some other ideas. Since this was an Easter DIY we wanted to add some finishing touches to ours…
So to finish ours off we wrapped some wired fake flowers around the top of our LEDs and there we have it – probably the easiest DIY project you could possibly take on this Easter, which is great as you now have lots of extra time to fill by eating Easter eggs!
We hope you enjoyed this project! Be sure to share the blog if you think your friends might like it too.
