Planning the Tree
Start by measuring the space and using the twine and bluetack, map out how big you’d like your fairy light tree to be and where your lights are going to zigzag.
Once you have those in place grab your lights and stick them to the bluetack to see how the placement looks and adjust as needed. It’s worth spending a little extra time getting it right at this stage, it’s much easier to move bluetack than adhesive!
When you’re happy with the placement, remove the twine then start sticking the adhesive strips where you’ve placed the bluetack – when you remove the bluetack, give the wall a wipe with a dry cloth to give the adhesive the best chance at sticking. Repeat until you’ve assembled all the adhesive strips.
Starting at the top, string your lights in a zigzag along the wall, pulling taught and attaching to the hooks as you go along. Finally, plug the lights in to make sure all looks good.
