Baking Cup Light String - Tutorial

by Jo Williams February 07, 2014

I have had many enquiries as to where I get the pretty strings of lights that adorn my home which I change the colours of according to the season or occasion. One lady thought that I collected tiny vintage lamp shades and strung them together!

These strings of pretty lights are so easy to construct, no glue or tape is required all you need are baking cups and a string of fairy lights (my fairy lights cost just 99p)
You could use a selection of baking cups or try this with paper party cups. Carefully cut a cross in the bottom of the cup and pop a light through the hole. The light should stay inside quite snuggly without the need of any glue or tape.
Within less than 5 minutes you will have a pretty string of lights!

Birthday party

my order arrived on time, the balloon were sensational!
Will come back!

They look very elegant

Time

These don't come assembled so allow yourself enough time for folding the foil into strips and attaching with bands. Looked lovely on the fireplace (not lit!)

Order enough

This only filled 2 numbers and two 16in orbs so definitely order more than you need and note it gets expensive!!! Do a design that allows you to use air and hang upside down and save helium for where you really need it.

Just what I needed

Guess what- it was perfect for a hen party! Top quality.
