I finally got around to that when Cost Plus/Pier 1 Imports/World Market had a 50% sale on jars. This one was categorized as a hurricane jar, and if I didn't have the idea of throwing a string in lights in there, I would probably be using it for a spare change jar. I also wouldn't have gotten it if it weren't half off. I mean, it's a cute idea, but you don't want to spend money on this. It's a $5 string of Christmas lights, fer cryin' in the night.
Verdict: Good. I'm sure someone more artistically inclined than I could creatively arrange the lights in there so it's not a clump, but you've got me and my skills, so this is the result. I have it plugged into a timer so it's already on when I get home from work, and it's the perfect amount of light to have in so I'm not walking into a dark room.
