The Magic Of Fairy Lights For Holiday Decorating

Pin It

No one likes a flock of sad fairies. Feeling left out of Christmas, the fairies were beside themselves. Not wanting their fellow storybook friends moping through the holidays, Santa’s elves got together and created a special Christmas light so beautiful and unique they would forever be called Fairy Lights to celebrate their special friends. And to this day, there’s a little magic in all fairy lights that makes everything they’re used for that much more enchanting.

Fairy lights add a little spirit to all holiday decorations and DIY Christmas craft projects because they’re tiny, beautiful and very easy to work with on just about any type of decor.
