If, like me, you are already bursting to get the Christmas decorations up then this craft is a perfect one for you without going all out Christmassy in November (my husband is already relieved!).
This is a clever use of Christmas lights to bring the warmth of Christmas into your home right now.
You will need fairy lights (I bought these ones for £2.50 from Wilkinsons), and a variety of pretty paper. I used wrapping-up paper as anything too thick makes this a much harder task.
Once opened it should look like this, with the four folds in a star shape.
This photo shows the folded side so you can see how it works.
Then fold it over again and tuck into the little triangle pockets, seen on the top right side.
Repeat with as many different papers as you have fairy lights.
This is how it looks one you have finished them all. It is as delightful in the daytime without the lights on as it is at nighttime with them brightly shining.
