Ways to Use LED Craft Lights
The LED light strings each have 20 lights to the strand spaced 3 inches apart. They were modeled after our most popular version of incandescent craft lights. A little more costly than our traditional filament-bulb sets they are a great solution for projects where heat is an issue or you want a longer lasting solution.
Depending on the heat build-up in your container, traditional lights strands with have a average of 500-2000 hour life span. LED lights are rated at over 10,000 hours of normal use. Ultimately, the lifespan of the sets is going to be directly tied to their environment and electricity source. We provide a warranty that follows the UL guidelines of 90 days of seasonal use.
Here are some ways that our customers are currently using these crafts Lights. Most of the projects take advantage of the 36 inch lead wire between the plug and first LED.
1. Fill wine bottles (after all the wine has been poured and enjoyed). The safest wasy to get a hole drilled into a wine bottle is to take it to your local glass shop. Call ahead for a quote and bring several bottles - to possibly make it cheaper per bottle and provide a backup if one breaks.
Choose green wire for dark bottles and white wire for clear.
Install the lights inside the bottle and shake the lights around a bit to get them evenly distributed.
You can personalize the bottles with paint, stickers, bows or leave them natural.
2. Use the lights to highlight glass bricks. Glass bricks sold in home improvement stores don't have holes - so you'll have to make your way back to the glass shop. Because of the popularity of using bricks in craft projects, you can now find them at local hobby super-stores.
Coordinate the color of the lights you choose to accent your party or decor. The project above is a bathroom night light set up during Christmas. (There was definitely a multi color theme that year!)
These bricks are often wrapped like presents and can accent tables at weddings and showers.
3. Use the lights to accent small indoor plants like rosemary. Nice dense shrubs are prefect for hiding the wires - use green wire for plants and white for bare accent branches.
4. Jump on the trend and fill a mason jar with lights. Use them to accent your kitchen.
These are just a few ways to use LED craft lights - I'm sure you have a project or two in mind already.
