Thankfully, someone heard that cry and asked me to try out a set (sweet!) at a discount. Even had they not, everything I say here is 100% my own opinion.
The Sweet Deets
I am way too old to try to use language like that. I do apologize. Seriously though, these things are soo long. 72 feet long to be exact. When I say fairy lights, do those tiny little twinkling lights come to mind? Yes. That is what they are. 72 glorious feet of tiny little solar powered wire fairy lights!
Copper Wire and Me, take one:
Heres the thing, I was really excited. Like so excited that right out of the box, my two beautifully bundled solar powered wire fairy lights became two slightly tangled but manageable bundles of lights. What happened was: I was too impatient and may have snapped one of the tiny little dainty strands of wire. Not made for these big ol’ monkey hands I guess. So here’s really the only pro tip your gonna need:
Be careful. Like, dainty and whimsical. Magical. Whatever. Don’t bend it or twist it too much. Watch the fingers.
Solar Lights Inside
Is this a thing? If it is why has no one told me what a magical idea it is to use little lights such as these solar powered wire fairy lights in the flippin house? I must get my head checked. Anyway, since its almost the start of the Christmas season, and snow is in the forecast, I pulled out the little village I started collecting last year. Its backdrop is the pallet sign that my BFF made for me last year with the solar powered wire fairy lights wrapped around the boards making it look like snow in the mountains. Then under the Retro Diner Wood Mill and Church, I placed bubble wrap (in a pinch, and it was Matthews idea 🙂 ) to look like snow.
And that’s about where I had to stop with this strand.

So I have a few Christmas items that I had to pull out (oh hush now, it’s calling for snow!) and rewire, and I couldn’t help myself, I bought 2 more strands because I love them so much. After I figure out the proper way to unroll them so they do not break, I will be sure to let you know. until then, be sure to check them out on Amazon before they are all sold out! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074SJQPC7
Until next time,
