3 Ways to Use Firefly Lights

3 Ways to Use Firefly Lights

Have you guys ever used firefly lights before? They are sort of the toddlers of the string light world (they're smaller and cuter!) and my new favorite way to add a little whimsical glow to a small corner of the room.

3 Ways to Use Firefly Lights

1. Plant friend – String them around a plant in your home and get a miniature version of those warm fuzzies you feel every year when putting up the Christmas tree.

2. A Jar of Light – Whether it's a terrarium, a mason jar, or a carafe that's not being used, put those lights into a clear glass vessel to add instant magic.

3. Flower Power – Double up on the decor by wrapping firefly lights around your favorite vase. That way, when you get up in the middle of the night for a late night snack, you've got a little extra glow to light the way.

We used our Oh Joy lights here but the same goes for any set of firefly lights you might already have, too!

UPDATE: We've had a lot of questions regarding where the battery pack gets stored. You can see it in some of the photos, but we just hide it behind the object. It can also be taped to the back or lengthen the cord a bit so that you can have it trail down behind the table the object is on (like in the glass carafe image). Hope that helps!

  1. I have the string lights. They are nice. However I have trouble hiding the battery box. How do you do it?

  3. Hey Chris!
    We just stuck it behind the object. If its with other pieces like a frame or books – you can hid it behind something larger like that.
    Best!

  4. Oh my gosh, why have I not done this with my firefly lights?!
    These are all so cute and simple, and so much better than stringing them up! Love love love! thanks for sharing!
    Also, shopped some of your collection at Target today! So happy to get my hands on it!

  5. We just redid my daughters bedroom and she wants to hang the fairy light around the upper half of the walls. I didn’t research enough at first when I bought the lights because they do not connect (one set into another). They are battery packs with no remote. So she would have to try to reach up and turn each one on separately, which is not ideal. I have an idea to hide the battery packs with large fake flowers in each corner. I think I should return the lights sets and get some that connect to each other so she can plug in or use one remote, instead of a remote for each set. Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you!
