Rosebud Fairy Lights

Rosebud Fairy Lights

string of small white, pink or red lights (you want the kind that don’t get hot), I used really tiny lights.

sheer wired ribbon in red or pink, I had 9 ft of ribbon and covered 20 small lights with enough leftover to do 1 or 2 more. The ribbon should be wider than your lights, mine was 1.5 inches.

floral tape in a color to match the light cord


1. Turn the end of the ribbon in just a tiny bit, 1/8 – 1/4 inch. Then turn once more, enough to surround one light.

2. Keep wrapping the ribbon around the light, holding it tight at the base of the bulb. I folded the bottom wire in on itself one or two time to keep it tight at the bottom, but give more volume on top.

Wrap the ribbon 3 times around the light (or as many as you think looks nice). Cut the ribbon.

3. Rip or cut off a small piece of floral tape, 2 – 3 inches. Wrap the tape tightly around the base of the light and the wound ribbon. This hold it in place. Bend the top wire to shape as you wish.
