What you’ll need:
  • 1 string of fairy lights
  • Egg cartons
  • Paints
  • Scissors
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Cut out the individual cups from each egg carton.
  • Paint each cup whichever colour (or colours) you’d like and add some glitter if your little ones want them to sparkle.
  • Once they’ve dried, cut small holes into the centre of each cup and thread a light through each one. You can attach an egg cup to every light or leave some lights free in between the ‘flowers’.
  • Hang them up, switch them on and remember never to leave fairy lights unattended.
