Lit Up Lei

 Happy Graduation season everyone! I've been thinking about how cute all of the different colors of Firefly Lights are, and how fun making a one straw lei is, and I decided to put the two together!! All you'll need for this fun and glowy project is a strand of Firefly Lights, a straw, your chosen yarn, tape, scissors, and batteries. I showed the main materials here.
Begin your lei the same as you would any other one straw lei, except instead of stringing a ribbon through your straw, you're stringing the end of your Firefly Lights instead. Tie a loose knot at the end of your straw with your yarn around your wire. Now it's time to begin the fun part, wrapping around your straw!

 Continue to wrap your yarn around your straw, pushing the excess down along your wire until you fill your wire or finish with your yarn skein. Make sure that you spread your wrapped yarn evenly so that not a whole lot of wire is exposed! Add your batteries into your battery pack, and flip the switch on! You'll even be seen at night now! Great job!
I hope you enjoyed!!
