With ten festive LED light ornaments strung together, the Fäîrÿ Light Set has all the makings of the perfect Christmas decoration. Ideal for use inside and outside the house, the ornaments are made from hard acrylic, which makes them impact proof and resilient to weather. So, come rain come snow, your Christmas lights will be twinkling merrily this year.
Fäîrÿ Lights For A Truly Merry Christmas!
Christmas Trees and Stars, Snowmen, Stockings and Red Hearts are all part of the Fäîrÿ Lights set. Each ornament follows the festive red and white color theme, with the Christmas Trees, the Stars and the Stockings combining the two colors while the Snowmen are all white and the hearts are all Red. All in all, you get the perfect mix of bright red and cool white; this means that you can use the Fäîrÿ Set against a background of any color imaginable.
For instance, the lighted ornaments look spectacular when used to decorate the wreath or the Christmas tree with green as the background shade and the garland looks just as wonderful when used to deck up the wooden banister or the black metallic balustrade or the pink headboard of the bed in your child’s room or even against translucent white curtains. Because these lights are battery powered, they can be used just about anywhere in and around the house and you won’t have to worry about wires that can turn into tripping hazards.
Why Is The Battery Powered Fäîrÿ Light Set Better Than Regular Christmas Lights?
Battery operated decorative lights have been all the frenzy for the past few years and with good reason. They even work in areas of the home that are far away from electrical outlets. Although some argue that in terms of brightness, battery powered garlands are no match to traditional, plug-in lights, this could not be further from the truth.
For one, battery lights, like those used in the Fäîrÿ Set, use LED bulbs; these burn bright with minimal energy expenditure. Also, unlike plug-in garlands, they do not generate intense heat which eventually leads to bulb failure and wire burn out. Another factor to consider is that the brightness of each light bulb will depend on how many units are being used in a garland.
In the Fäîrÿ Light Set, ten bulbs are used, one inside each ornament, as opposed to the 20 or even 40 bulbs used in other light garlands. What this means is that you get more brightness and longer battery life.
Battery lights also have scores of other advantages such as:
- You can use them on the ceiling, on and around the patio roof, outside the door, on the wreath, on the dining table, on the kitchen island, on curtains and more. In other words, your options are only limited by your own creativity.
- They are safer than plug-in lights which generate a lot of heat and given their high power consumption, may lead to a fire if too many garlands are plugged into the same socket.
- White light from an LED bulb will be brighter than that emitted by a regular bulb.
- Battery lights are eco friendlier than plug in alternatives if you use recyclable and rechargeable batteries.
- Given the low voltage of these lights, there is never any risk of electrical shock even if the set malfunctions.
Unique Christmas Decorating Ideas With Fäîrÿ Lights
Christmas Themed Chandelier
The simple way to do this is to wrap the Fäîrÿ Light ornaments around your existing chandelier in such a way that the Stars, the Trees, the Snowmen and other ornaments hang low, creating a distinctive effect. When switching the lights on, forego the brighter bulbs of the chandelier in favor of the softer lighting of Fäîrÿ Lights.
There is also another option! If you are willing to put in a bit of effort, you can create a stunning and totally festive effect with things you can find around your house and the Fäîrÿ Light set. You will need two hula-hoop rings, one large and one small or you need some metal wire thin enough to be bent into a circle. If you have left over twigs of faux fir, berries, etc. or a few stems from a plastic Christmas tree, use them to create a green base by tying them on the rings.
The rings will then have to be tied concentrically one on top of the other. Tie them at three points with white ribbons, so you have a two level chandelier and simply wrap the Fäîrÿ lights around the wreaths you have made. Attach your Christmas chandelier to the ceiling or you could hang it on existing ceiling lights.
Dining Table Centerpiece
Take a deep, glass fruit bowl and fill it with colorful beads or pebbles add a few twigs of fir for good measure and place the ornaments of the Fäîrÿ Light Set at the edge of the bowl. Add some more pebbles/beads to anchor the ornaments. To create a striking contrast, use old woolen scarves, preferably in rustic colors such as brown, maroon or sienna as runners and add locally available blooms to the center piece.
Why restrict yourself to using lights just on the Christmas tree and outdoors? Add a wintry scene to the festive look with some cool window dressing. Use cutouts made from regular white craft paper or even tissue paper; go for mountains, trees and clouds. Stick the Fäîrÿ Light ornaments in such a way that they seem a part of the scene.
For example, keep the Snowmen and the Heart at the floor level and the Stars near the clouds, the Trees around the mountains and the Stockings higher up. Another way is to use white sheer curtains and simply hang 2-3 Fäîrÿ Light Sets vertically. Because you don’t need to plug them in and they do not generate heat, your curtains and your home will be perfectly safe.
Wall And Artwork Decoration
Since you get 11 inches in between each ornament, you can also use Fäîrÿ Lights to make an ordinary Christmas card garland look spectacular. Use some scotch tape to stick the ornament at the very top of the card and do not forget to hide the wire in between by wrapping some ribbon around it. Also, glue some leaves and twigs to it, so that you get a natural looking garland.
Wreath With A Twist
Wreaths seldom get any light effects because it is hard to find a socket nearby; even when people do use battery operated lights, they go for tiny bulb strings. But, if you want to stay true to the holiday theme, use the Fäîrÿ Light set wrapped around the wreath in such a way that the ornaments form a second ring on top of the greenery. If you don’t have a wreath and would like to make one for yourself, use some sponge or old fabric to add bulk to the ring.
Cover it with some shiny paper and follow with a layer of net/translucent fabric. Instead of a golden or silver, go for a metallic blue or green paper and use a white net on top; stick some colorful beads and flowers to your wreath and finally add the Fäîrÿ lights.
On The Mantel
You will need 4 wine glasses, 2 small, gift wrapped boxes; 2 small cups, preferably in white; 4 tea lights and 2 pine cones. Place the wine glasses upside down with the stem up. Insert the four narrow ornaments from the Fäîrÿ Lights Set inside the upturned glasses. The two Christmas Trees and the two Snowmen will fit easily inside the bulb of the wine glass.
Use beads and colored pebbles to anchor fir twigs in the white cups/bowls. Use these as the support for the red Hearts. The gift wrapped boxes are to support the red and white Stockings while the Stars should be placed against the pine cones. Cover the wire in between with a generous sprinkling of shiny beads. Place the tea lights on the 4 upturned glasses. The base of the wine glasses will serve as the perfect holder for candles or LED tea lights.
How To Get The Most From Fäîrÿ Lights?
At the start of the New Year, when you are all set to stow away the Christmas decorations, remove the Fäîrÿ Light Set and wipe the ornaments with a dry cloth or kitchen towel. Remove the batteries and roll the wire around. Use small zip ties to hold the wire in place and prevent the ornaments from getting entangled.
The lights can then be stored in a box for use next Christmas. Although the ornaments are smash proof, it would be best to not keep heavy objects on top of them. If you intend to store the holiday decoration in one box, fold an old towel and cover the ornaments of the Fäîrÿ light set before placing other lights and ornaments on top.
