This Fairy Light Wall installation is easy and gorgeous!
Love the boho look for your bedroom? The Cherry Blossom crew does, too. When one of our friends made this easy and beautiful project for her room, we knew we had to share it with you. Bonus: it’s super inexpensive. So, grab a parent, friend, or sibling. Then make a couple of stops for materials, and you can create this gauzy light wall for your own room in less than a couple of hours.
What is it exactly and how to style this in your room? This installation is basically two sheer, gauzy curtains hung on a hidden rod. Behind it, the magic of white light strings and no-drill command hooks creates an ethereal and ultra-cool effect that will make your room the prettiest on the block.
Let’s get started. You’ll need:
1. One single, metal curtain rod. Get it at Ikea, Target, Amazon.com, or your local home accessories store. Choose white and make sure your rod curves at the edges and doesn’t have any finials that stick out. This one at Target is only $4.00!
2. Three packs of white/clear 150-count string lights. These are from Target and run $8.99 a pack. But you can find them on sale right now if you hurry…
3. Small, clear Command hooks. You will need about ten hooks to complete this project. Available at Target.
4. Two Sheer White Curtains(one set.) See our headline shot. Be sure to choose a length of curtain panels that allow for enough room to hang just under your ceiling, and extend to the floor. Curtains come in a few standard lengths. Measure your space before you buy. Our friend got hers at Ikea for $8.99! Find them here. You can also find these at any Bed, Bath and Beyond or Target.
Step 1. Hang the curtain rod and brackets close to the ceiling. It’s okay if your rod and curtains are wider than your bed or headboard. Center a twin size bed in the middle of the curtain rod. Hanging the rod will require 2-4 drilled holes. The only holes this project will require.
Step 2. Affix the small Command hooks on the wall, just underneath the curtain rod. Use the instructions provided on the Command box to make sure they stay. Space them out evenly. The rod length in our photo used 10 Command hooks.
Step 3. Drape the light strings on the hooks and arrange however you want. In our photo, the lights on the ends hang a bit longer for effect. Make sure there’s an outlet nearby and use a power strip to organize the plugs.
Step 4. Feed the white curtain panels onto the rods. Plug in your lights and…
