Paper Cup Crafts – Fairy Light Bunting

We are back with more paper cup crafts! Here is a super quick and easy (and seriously cute, if I may say so myself), party decoration – paper cup fairy light bunting! Decorate your garden for a garden party, or have them indoors. They look great during the day and at night (check out the “light up photo” below).
