A DIY Fairylight backdrop took me ages to sew in the panels with my sewing machine, but once they were done it was grand slotting in the fairlylights. Took this on for my dad's retirement party, as the function room we went for was quite dull and boring. The restaurant/bar manager came out to me and asked where I bought them, I was delighted, I didn't tell her I made them. When I first put them together I used just a single layer of organza. The lights were a bit harsh so I bought some voile ( sheer material) curtains to put over them, and this softened the look. Not using mine as a backdrop though our hotel already has one for us included in the package, using this to decorate a glass entrance at the top of a staircase kind of like a curtain framing the entrance at our venue and finishing off with ivory rose trees. It can be divided into different sections to give this curtain effect So excited now!!!! :hyper:

Gorgeous! I'm veeeery impressed. Won't be doing this myself but am mad curious. What type of fairy lights did you use so that you didn't end up with a million plugs? Are they christmas icicle ones or....????

+1 for a how to! and +1 on the type of lights that you used :) I wish there was a way of flagging individual posts, because there is a lot of really good how to's on here and they get lost :(

I'd love to know how you made them too. just looking at some of your posts, you've made quite a lot of things for your wedding and they look really well, I'm trying to make my own invitations they are taking so long and I cant settle on a design for them. any inspiration? I need them to be simple my DIY skills are very basic, you guys put me to shame.
