We're down to the wire in terms of getting our homes ready for holiday guests, but this clever idea is as easy as could be.
You can start with any glass vessels you have around the house. The pale green, hammered glass containers we chose come in many sizes and shapes, so they invite fun groupings. For eye-catching sparkle, simply insert strands of LED Fantasia Fairy Lights.
The long wire strands are stiff enough to stay vertical within the vessels, yet flexible enough to hang gracefully. Silver plating on the thin wires reflects the tiny lights and adds to the ambience. You can hide the battery pack for the lights right inside the glass containers, or if you prefer, drill a hole in the glass and run the cord outside.
