Christmas in July 2018 - Day Sixteen

Day Sixteen is all about perimeter ideas - how you decorate your fence line or walkways.  One of the Magical Holiday Home members posted an idea of using Mason Jars filled with sand and a tealight.  I took this idea in a different direction and swapped the tealights (with flame) for the new battery-operated ones that are available and most commonly used inside a jack-o-lantern.  Then I saw this...

What a great idea to use the battery-operated strings of mini-lights that burst onto the market a couple of years ago.  I assume the battery pack is perhaps adhered to the underside of the lid in some way.  It's almost like a group of fireflies trapped in a jar.  I think you would get the same result from a decorated jar like this one below.

This site has some beautiful ideas.


  1. Beautiful! I love the fairy lights in the jar

  2. I showed Jaymee jars like the bottom one last year with Christmas pictures on it, but didn't do any.
