Flower Fairy Lights DIY Tutorial

If you love fairy lights then you will love this easy tutorial for creating flower fairy lights from egg cartons!

Supplies for making Flower Fairy Lights

– different colored cartons (or  you may choose to paint them yourself)
– scissors
– wire

Step 1. With a pair of sturdy scissors, cut away excess cardboard surrounding the cup strips. Round the edges of the egg carton strips to imagine the petals. Make three of these egg carton ends and insert them into each other. The innermost need not be cut into four strips.

Step 2. Insert the wire into the hole in the middle and fasten them by pinching the wire together. Make sure it hangs a long wire out from the hole so that the downside in this way can pin the flower on a branch.

Step 3. Starting at the cup opening, make a short slit into each side of the cup.Then simply insert one fairy light into each “flower”. They are not attached to anything.
