Fill your non-working fireplace with logs wrapped in battery operated lights

Stacking logs in your fireplace is a no brainer, but we decided to take it a step further by wrapping birch logs in our petite starry lights to give them a little glow. These lights are super handy since they’re battery powered, and because the LED lights are connected by a thin wire, they’re easy to wrap and mold to your wreath or garland.

Fill your non-working fireplace with mercury glass vases and LED globes

If your fireplace is non-working, you probably miss the warm glow you’d expect from a hearth. To make up for it, we suggest Mercury Glass Vases and Mercury Glass LED Globes.
