Fairy lights aren't just for Christmas! Keep them all year round with this pretty pretty light box picture frame!
Who doesn’t love fairy lights? No, really. I want to know, so I can find them and convert them to my way of thinking! The teeny, twinkling lights have this uncanny ability to make anything awesome in my eyes. So what better way to decorate your favourite photo or piece of art, than with a pretty light box picture frame!

Just make sure you get a box frame with space between the glass and the backing or else this project wont work!

    Step 1

    Start by separating the frame from the glass and the backing. Start from the end of the lights, run the string around the inside of the frame, securing with tape around the corners.

    Once you have attached all of the string, go back around, tucking the lights in under the string and securing any loose areas with more tape. Put your frame back together with the glass. One of the backing corners is cut off, so you can thread the battery pack through the gap when you secure the backing. Tuck it behind your frame and turn on your new lit up display! Oh, so pretty!
