I was at Hobby Lobby and found these great little battery operated fairy light in the Christmas Department.  I bought lots of them, because I was excited thinking about all of the things I could make with them.  So here is my first project called Mason jar Lanterns, and they are cute if I do say so myself.  They are also another really easy project.

Fairy Light Lanterns

Things that you will need:

1 Quart Wide Mouth Mason Jar with lid
1 package of battery operated LED light
I Large Roll White Ribbon Tulle
Glue Gun
Glue Sticks


Glue the short end of the battery pack to the lid of the mason jar. Make sure that you use the end that does not open.  The battery pack does hang down inside the jar with the on off switch hanging toward the bottom of the jar.

Cut the tulle to two times the lenghth of the strand of lights.

Next wrap the lights and tulle together so that they will be evenly  distributed when you put them inside the jar.  I just loosely wrapped them around my hand, and then wrapped the extra length of tulle lightly around the outside of the lights.

Turn the lights on, and screw the lid onto the jar.  You can unscrew the lid and pull the battery pack out to turn the lites off and on.

I made a tulle bow that I tied around the lid.

This came out so cute.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  I made three at the same time.

I hope you like this project as much as I do.  I think they came out so cute.  I always love hearing from you, so leave me your comments.

Have a great day.

  1. Enjoy your vacation, looks lovely!
    Thanks for hosting!

  2. Debi,
    Great idea and so cute!! After Christmas in Target, I bought several packs of battery operated LED lights made by Phillips. They had a cord that was long enough the I was able to use 2 sets each in my Dining Room Hutch and a China Cupboard in my Den. I will be looking again for them this year as i have a lot of other ideas for them this year


    1. Hi Deb,
      That was a great idea to use them around your china hutch. I think I am going to try them around my mantle.
      Have a great week and thanks for sharing.

  3. Where did you find your battery operated lights?

    1. Hi Rose,
      It would be fun if they could be solar powered. Then I could use them outside to line my walkway when we are having people over. I will have to look around for something like that.
