How do I attach fairy lights to the outside of a vase?

by Anna

I'm making table centerpieces and tried hot glue,which didn't hold, to add fairy lights to the outside of the vases. Has anyone had success wrapping vases with fairy lights? These vases have to be packed and travel a long distance before being unpacked and used. They can't be too delicate. Thanks for your insights.

    E6000 glue works pretty good on most materials. I use it alot.

    You might try a super glue.

  • Hi Anna,

    If it were me, I would pack a hot glue gun and attached them once you have arrived and are in the space. Hot glue dries very quickly and allows you the freedom to adjust things once you get there.

    My sister used fairy lights for her center pieces for a destination wedding, but she just placed the lights inside the vases.

    Thanks, everyone! I'll try both E6000 and super glue as an experiment. I'm also packing the glue gun anyway, so I guess that will be my backup. Wish me luck!
