Crescent 100 x 2.5mm Black Cable Ties - 500 Pack
Turn your first vegie cage upwards so the base is on the floor. Push all four points together to make a tip. Hold the four points together and tape them together using the cable ties. Cut the excess cord using scissors. Repeat with your other two cages. You now have your trees!
Open the first fairy light box and unravel the lights. Starting at the tip of your tree, cable tie the end of the fairy lights to the tip of your tree. Cut off the excess cord. Once it is secure, start wrapping the lights around the tree, continuing until you reach the very bottom. If needed, you can secure the lights with cable ties at intervals to ensure they don't slip. Repeat with your other two trees and other boxes of fairy lights. Add the batteries to each battery pack and turn on your lights.
Lift the tree and place the solar panel inside so the lights obscure it. Place it in your desired spot and watch as your Christmas teepee comes to life.
When it's time to pack everything away, wrap the fairy lights around an empty toilet roll to prevent tangling and carefully place the frame in a safe place for next year. Alternatively, you can repurpose the teepee for an all-year round sparkle by simply removing the Christmas elements.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes.
