Now I am not a do-it-yourself kind of gal. I can't change a tyre, I can't put up a picture, heck I can't even iron. So when it comes to DIY's I need things that are simple, but effective.
I'd seen this one floating around Pinterest and other blogs, and frankly I'm not even sure I can refer to this as a DIY it's so easy but I really did do it myself, so we'll go with it. Around Christimastime I am all about being festive and decorating my room; I get out the glitter, the holly and the fairy lights. I usually string up a some multicoloured fairy lights around the perimeter of my room for the ultimate in Christmas festivities but this year I thought i'd try something else too.
I chose the White LED Micro Battery Fairy Lights which are on a wire, unlike your traditional fairy lights but that is important to mention. If you're considering making one of these you need to get the lights on wire otherwise they'll all just sink to the bottom - unless that is the look you're going for.
I love my little light-jar now, it's so pretty and when it's becoming dusk it acts as somewhat of a nightlight. If you had children this would be a really cheap but lovely way to make them a nightlight for their bedroom. By using the ribbed jar it actually cascades some pretty patterns on the wall it sits next to too. Either way, it's been a lovely addition to my little home and actually looks very pretty even when it's not all lit up.
