Fall Dinner Party & Décor DIY Using Firefly Lights

Capture the charm and romance of warmer evenings with charming firefly mason jar lights. They’re a quick and easy 2-minute craft and they’re beautiful to behold. Let’s get started!



Make Your Own Firefly Mason Jars

These fairy lights in a jar can be used as part of a large, decorative centerpiece for an enchanting sort of look, alone as ambient light, or even as an energy efficient night light. The possibilities are endless.


Here’s What You’ll Need:


Here’s How You Make Your Lights Sparkle:

  1. First, place your sparkling LED lights into your mason jar. Position the battery case outside of the jar so you can easily switch your fireflies on (or off!).
  2. Next, seal your jar with the mason jar lid.
  3. Finally, add your batteries and switch your light on. Watch your fireflies sparkle!


Personally, we like to stagger our firefly lights throughout our fall evening tablescape alongside our favorite DIY rustic centerpiece. The mixture of flickering fairy lights, rustic wildflowers, and other natural materials gives the table setting a sort of rustic, candlelight-during-sunset sort of feel.

    I like to buy a big roll of brown paper (I don’t know this item name) to cover the garbage cans for a church event. Also, I used this paper to put over the table cloths to have as a runner. Thanks.
