With the mercury plummeting to freezing outside and the excitement of Christmas now feeling like a distant memory, it’s easy to feel a little down in the dumps.
But as the cold, dreary weather grips the UK, there’s no reason why you can’t brighten up your mood by making your home nice and cosy.
Illuminating your home with a warm hue will not only perk you up but also help you to get through the gloomy Winter months.
At ChristmasTimeUK we offer a wide selection of decorative fairy lights which will transform your living space.
Here are five brilliant hacks using decorative lights that you’ll be desperate to try for yourself.
3D paper lights
Placing decorative lights, such as these Indoor Static Warm White LED Paper Snowflake Shade Fairy Lights, on mantelpieces, on windowsills and around picture frames is a great way to accentuate their shape and turn everyday objects into focal pieces. The 3D shapes mean they look equally as good during daytime lights as they do in an evening, when they create a cosy warming glow.
Fairy light jars
Micro LEDs are extremely versatile and can be used to turn almost anything in the home into a decorative piece. Placing a cluster of lights inside a Mason jar or vase is a simple yet cost-effective way to create stunning table centrepiece or ornament for the mantelpiece. The enchanting glow is perfect to warm up the cold winter nights.
Create words with rope light
Using rope light to create words on the walls not only looks pretty cool but choosing the right words can be inspirational too and can give you a much needed ‘pick me up’ during the dark days when it can be difficult to get out of bed.
Peg family photos to fairy lights
Add a touch of sparkle to a blank wall by hanging or zig-zagging a set of string lights to it, before pegging some family photos to the strand. A lovely personalised display which will add a smile to your face.
Turn your hallway into a magical walkway fit for a fairytale by adorning the ceiling with curtain lights. You will feel like a big kid again every time you walk beneath it and will certainly create a lasting first impression on guests!
