How to make pretty lights…
Ambient light in 5 minutes flat!
The jar lights I made created quite a bit of interest.
The benefit of using LED lights over tealights is safety & if you’re having an outdoor party you don’t need to worry about weather as the light would of course be protected by the lid of the jar.
Edit: I used large jars which were purchased very cheaply from a homewares store but used kitchen jars would work too. If you want uniformity with the the lids then perhaps a coat of paint?
The LED battery operated lights that I used were purchased from Bunnings. They are OSRAM brand “Dot-it” lights. They are around the $10 mark but they do just go on & on & on. I’ve also seen them at lighting shops.
I’m seriously considering setting up something in the garden similar to this brilliant piece of garden art…
which was inspired by Margie’s project here.
Of course, you don’t really need a how to…it’s a speed demon type project. Forge ahead, have a crack & you can’t really go wrong.
& because I wanted to try out the embed feature through Google Docs…
you just need to click the little icon in the top right (open in new window) if you want to print the pdf.
If you liked this idea you might also like the wrapped tealights.
