I purchased a light up Christmas tree made from baby food jars, christmas lights (the mini ones), ribbon and garland.
Basically you stack the jars in the tree shape or any shape and epoxy the jars together.
Then you "puncture" the lids and glue them back onto the jars.
Finally, you stuff pieces of garland in each jar and stick in one or 2 lights in each jar. Wrap tree sides in ribbon.
You can do any color lights or garland - Mine is Pink!!!
You could do the same and make funky table lights or even mount them to a wall.
Here is the tree pattern and a square pattern for ideas.
Hope this makes sense!
