My DIY Firefly mason jar lanterns!

I saw these on Etsy and knew I had to have them, but didn't want to pay the high price tag so I made them myself!  All it took was mason jars, faux spanish moss, and a battery operated string of clear lights.  The hardest part was getting the lights throughout the entire jar, as it all wanted to fall to the bottom.  After a few jars I was able to perfect it with the help of kitchen tongs!  The lights have an on-off switch too, so you have to be sure to leave that at the top of the jar and cover it.  I love them, and I can't wait to see them in action!

those are really cute,,too bad those battery lites dont blink off and on,,that would make it seem more like real fireflies but I love your idea.

I didnt even think about blinking lights, that would have been awesome!  I got everything on sale though and they were like 75% the price of the Etsy items, so I'm happy :)
