Yes! ‘Egg carton’, you read that right! To create these lights all you need is an egg carton, scissors, paint and a paintbrush. Adding your favourite colour or even the theme colour of your wedding can be a great personal touch. We love how the illumination from the light creates an ombre colour effect.

Dixie Cup lights

These Dixie cup lights are perfect for an outdoor wedding (with good weather of course).

Jam jars

Rustic wedding anyone? This style is all about going back to basics. We know jam jars are awesome (and great for drinking out of at hipster bars) but who would of thought they could look this great filled with water, floating tealights and straw ribbon.
