Firefly lights make an evening magical, and they’re really very easy to do.

What you need:

Battery Operated Flickering Lights

Little Black Doggie Trash Bags for cleaning up…well, you know.

String or twine

DIY Firefly Lights

Not the best picture, but you get the idea. All you need to do is tie the trash bag around the lights, stick the flame part through, and tie some yarn or string. You can just place them in your yard, but hanging makes it look like they’re swaying and moving around. We placed them all around our yard, and when the lights went out our guests were really delighted.

To add a little more ambiance, we played music that was just sound effects of crickets chirping.
