How cute are these fairy light lampshades?- all bright stripes and scalloped edges. Can you guess what they are made from? Yes? No? Well, I shall tell you. They are made from these party treat cups from Talking Tables.
I really like these cups, for one thing they hold a decent amount of sweeties and for another they are nice and robust so perfect for using again and again or as I have done using them for this craft project.
To make these circus themed fairy lights you will need.
A set of battery powered fairy lights (mine just happened to have removable coloured heads but normal sets work well too. A sharp pencil, Mix and Match treat cups from Talking Tables. £4 for 20, Glue gun (optional)
Take one of the treat cups, turn it upside down and with the pencil make a hole in the centre of the base.
If your fairy lights have removable heads, take the head off then feed the fairy light bulb into the hole.
Replace the head to hold the cup in place – or use a little blob of glue from the glue gun on the top of the cup to hold it firm.
Repeat with all the other cups. Simples as they say.
Remember don’t leave fairy lights on when out of the house or overnight.
PS: the lovely people at Talking Tables sent me some product to create these craft projects but they sell online and in most large department stores.
