I created a letter light up with fairy lights actually as a Christmas present for one of my sisters. I had the wrong tape and not enough patience, so the project ended up in my storage room until recently. I bought some textile tape in black and stuck the few pieces together.

All you need:
cardboard (an old boots box or something similar big)
textile tape (like duct tape)
drilling machine
fairy lights.

All you actually need to do is cut out a letter out of a boots box, add some walls to get a 3D illusion. Drill holes in the size of the tips of the fairy lights. Put those into the freshly drilled holes and voilá!

Great idea! If you use the photos from your blog to put together an Instructable, that'd be awesome. <br /> <br />GM
