It’s Christmas and if you are like me, you have a heart to buy everyone a gift but a bank account that clearly says- NO.  It doesn’t have to cost a bunch to create a great gift that warms the heart and let’s them know you really care.  You will need a few things:

-One string of battery powered mini-lights


-An old vase or jar (you’ve been wondering how you were going to re-purpose them.)

This is going to be the fastest gift you have ever put together and you may just love it so much you’ll make one for yourself.  Simply turn your string of lights on after you have put in the batteries and coil the light in your vase.  If you want to, you can cut a piece of Christmas ribbon and tie a bow to make it a little more dressy.  I love this gift because it is Merry and Bright.  It makes a super gift for that friend who has had a rough year and may not want to decorate this year.  This could also be a great gift for a friend or family member who is limited on space.  You could use it as part of your table center piece during the Christmas and New Year’s season.  The lights come in different colors so you can mix it up.  Enjoy!  Merry Christmas and Happy 2018!

    I love this idea!! Goodwill or St Vincent DePaul might have a jar or vase if a person doesn’t have one already. Where do you get the mini lights with batteries you are talking about?
