What You'll Need

Blu tack

Several sheets of paper

Seed Lights 

A Star


1. Layer Your Paper

The paper you choose to complete your tree is completely up to you, it can be anything from old book pages or letters to postcards or drawings. We suggest layering the sheets of paper to create a full effect and create more volume before attaching micro lights.

Letters and book pages arranged in a tree shape with fairy lights.

2. Add Lights

Add your seed lights with blu tack in a zig-zag pattern to add some sparkle to your festive feature! Seed lights are perfect, as they are super lightweight and remain cool to the touch so there’s no worry of displaying them near the paper.

3. Add a Star

To complete the look, pop our small gold star light at the top of the tree held up by a pin and the battery box placed on picture rail moulding. All that’s left to do is to illuminate your lights to bring it to life!
