Place the lace lengthwise along the rim of ring and sew it along the wire till all of it is covered with lace. Tie threads of equal lengths at equal distance on the lace ring. Tie them together above the centre of the ring. Now cover the ring with the fairy lights leaving some parts of the string hanging loose to make the chandelier look more beautiful. Hang this lighted chandelier in your living room.

Now attach the cable hooks on the wall at various places. Hang fairy lights on these hooks while making patterns like trees, stars, hearts with the lights. Cover these lighted patterns with curtains. Turn on the fairy lights and see your room glow with magic.
