    LOVE: NEW Copper wire string lights for Christmas from Lark, via WeeBirdy.com.

    Move over boring old fairy lights! The must-have accessory for Christmas 2014 has arrived: copper wire string lights. I spotted this genius product in Lark’s line-up of gorgeous new decorations for Christmas, and they would make a seriously pretty new addition to home (and best of all, you could keep them up all year).

    I’m a little bit obsessed with these simple string lights, and have already imagined them in various decorating scenarios all over my home.

    The tiny lights remind me of fireflies and they appear more delicate than your average string of fairy lights. The rosy golden tones of the thin copper wire are illuminated, creating a warm glow.

    The copper wire string lights are available in both five and 10 metre lengths, and your decorating options are seemingly endless: pop them in a bowl; hang them on your Christmas tree; add a glow to your unused fireplace; or trail them down the centre of your dining table.

    Clever idea: if you're short on space for a Christmas tree this year, create an outline using these new copper wire string lights from Lark, via WeeBirdy.com.

    Not keen on copper? The string lights are also available in silver wire, which is great news for those who love their silver decorations.

      Thankyou! I saw some like these and I couldn’t remember where! They look good wrapped around things too e.g candles. I also like the Lark retro christmas lights….

      Yes, I really love these! I think I would be tempted to make my own lamps out of them and change their shapes on a whim.

      They really are beautiful. I like the idea of putting them in a clear vessel & hanging them around various parts of the house. They give off a lovely warm glow.
