Fairy Light Monogram Letter Tutorial

Polka Dot Bride

I have a thing for fairy lights. In fact to me, it’s hardly a celebration without something that lights up. This tutorial may be the simplest of all but for an outdoor evening reception or if you’re looking for a little fun decor for when the sun goes down, it might just work for you!

What you’ll need:

When I told you it was easy, I meant it- this tutorial simply involves wrapping your lights around the shape of the letter and securing with wire!

Dead easy, dead simple but SO pretty once the candles need to be lit and the dance floor action starts!

      Hi Ame,

      let me know how you go! This was a quickie, so I’d love to see someone do it in a more considered time!

    I ended up finding a A & C, I’ll have a play with the lights & see how it looks. We are thinking of having them sit infront of us on the bridal table, all lit up!
