I had a string of little lights which I hadn’t used since I actually did not like the color of the lights. They are a little too orange like for my taste around Christmas and there for I don’t seem to find a place for them.
But I’ve sometimes mentioned that things need time and this was one of those. The lights found a home. Fairy homes.
So the idea started when I did these little houses with my girls. They are made from toilet paper rolls, carton (the roofs), pastel colored paints and glitter.
After craft time we had made a bunch of these little houses and for some time they sat on a shelve. I thought the colors of these houses were lovely and I just did not want to throw them away yet. I cut a whole at the top of the roof and through the whole I pushed the lights through. In some cases if I had cut the hole a little too big I had to put a little piece of tape to keep the lights in place.
When I was done I turned the lights on and voilá the fairy houses lit up. I love the fact that it seems like someone is home.
Now the next challenge is to find a place to put them.
