It is very, very cool how these throw light around.

These are intended as stocking stuffers for Christmas.

Those are fabulous!!!  If you don't mind me asking, what sort of hook did you use at the top?  Hmmm....some of those would look great hanging from the sides of my gazebo and trellis!!  Good job!!

for these I used old key rings but in the past I've purchased s-hooks and used them...I imagine you would want to use something that will work well with whatever you plan to hang them from.

Thank you for posting the link to the tutorial! I love how they look.Now I just need to find some tiny mirrors! I have a store bought one-not nearly as pretty-hung near my fence.When the sun hits it right for reflections,it looks like I have my own herd of tinkerbelles.
