This is something I learned from my grandma.
She puts twinkle lights inside of vintage blue mason jars and let them sparkle up the kitchen counter.
I was sad to take down the Christmas decorations, so this helps ease the transition a little.
What a fantastic idea! I am going to do this next time I have a cocktail party for centerpieces!
I love, love, love that. It's so simple, but very pretty. Good one, Grandma!
Do this in the summer and set it on twinkle; hang them from trees and say they are fireflies ;)
Looks like creativity runs in the family!How do you discreetly plug them into an outlet?-Kate
That's a fantastic idea! I love it!
avid reader - great idea!kate - errr... I guess they weren't very discreet. I didn't do anything special. When the kitchen is dark, you don't really notice the plug.
This is really pretty with wine bottles too. If you want you can go crazy and tie silk or dried flowers around the neck with raffia or ribbon!
what a great idea! i love grandma's. expect mine is a we bit crazy. she once "glued" my Brooke Shield's doll's leg (yes I'm old) back to her body by placing her over the stove. She was never the same again ... ;)
Gawd. It's been brought to my attention before that I am fire phobic. I guess I am, when my first thought was "is that safe?" when everyone else's was "cute!".It IS a cute idea, especially as I, um, collect vintage blue (and green) mason jars.
you could use battery operated lights they sell at walgreens. i bought some around christmas time for the wreath on my door.
