I’ve been wanting something like these, but larger fairy lights, for some time now, just to add another level to my decor; however, when I got these, even though they’re smaller, I was quite pleased. They come in different colors – blue, green, purple, warm white, and white. The ones I got are in Warm White.
When I first saw it I was scratching my head at the box, since it was so small, I didn’t think anything substantial could fit in that box. But then I took them out and unwound them.
They’re amazingly versatile, you can bend and shape them to or wrap them around just about anything, stick them in anything clear or translucent, or put them on anything. Their base wire is thin copper, making them moldable. They don’t need to be plugged in as they have a little thumb battery pad that holds one of those flat round batteries. Though, unfortunately, you’d have to unscrew 4 tiny screws in order to open it to change the battery as it doesn’t have a slide panel to open it. There is a little on/off switch, making it convenient to operate. What is there not to love about these!
I know, boring, but I just did the drape thing and put them around my mirrors to see how they’d look. It came in a set of two, so I was able to do one around my floor length mirror and one on my wall mirror. I’ll probably play around with it more and see how else I can use them. I like how they were used by others, in jars, they kind of look like fireflies. These would be fantastic if I had an outside patio or gazebo or something like that where I could hang them or wrap them around posts – not in the Winter time though as I’d never go outside then and wouldn’t be able to admire them that way, haha.
Each 9+ foot long wire holds 30 tiny little LED lights – the lights are like little lit beads. The battery is supposed to last for 48 hours straight, but I turn mine off when I know I’m not going to be in the room for a while. They look great in the day as well as at night and make for a wonderful room or furniture accent. I just like looking at them when they’re on. So pretty and mesmerizing! 🙂
