D.I.Y. Fireflies in a jar


Hello Everyone,

Over the holidays I put together a few fun decorative pieces to supplement my lack of christmas ornaments and my unwillingness to purchase more. My first little invention came from a display i saw at Urban Outfitters of all the places. It was some sort of firefly in a jar. very amazing and can we used all year round makes an amazing centrepiece for weddings or for fancy shabby chic back yard BBQ’s. You’re the boss you decide.

What you will need…

  • One pack of mini LED lights
  • Double AA batteries
  • Large vintage jar ( any large jar with a lid will do)
  • Decorative sande (or any sad will do.

Directions…

un-package your LED lights and place batteries in. Double check the lights to make sure they do work. some LED lights come with Timers. set the timer for when you want your lights to come on.
