Cut wood into 3 pieces 50cm long and 2 pieces 40cm long.

Paint wood with 2 coats of white paint, al­low­ing to dry be­tween coats. Place the 50cm pieces next to each other. Nail the 40cm pieces across at ei­ther end to brace.

On front, sketch de­sign with a pen­cil. Mark where the fairy lights will go.

Drill holes for the fairy lights.

Paint over your pen­cilled de­sign. Dry. Poke fairy lights through holes. Use elec­tri­cal tape to se­cure in place. At­tach hang­ers to back.


Fairy lights with red bulbs ac­cen­tu­ate the red holly de­sign.

For a more rus­tic look, skip paint­ing the wood white or per­haps treat with a wood stain.

A Christ­mas tree de­sign would also look re­ally cute – with fairy light bulbs through­out the tree!
