Now it’s easier than ever to make any of your projects stand out—LED Ribbon Lights add just the right amount of sparkle to home décor, clothes and accessories, holiday decorations, and more. These small lights are attached to a soft, flexible satin ribbon that can be sewn or glued onto projects to add eye-catching effects.

The nearly 5-foot length of ribbon comes with a tiny battery pack that can be hidden on the underside of projects. These amazing lights are even hand- or machine-washable when the battery pack is removed. And, the best part is you can cut the ribbon to any length and each section is fully functional with its own separate battery pack.

The lights come in 6 colors—white, red, yellow, blue, lime, and orange—to match or contrast nearly anything you want to embellish. There are five illumination settings from steady-on to super-fast flashing.

Whether you create projects from scratch, or start with a purchased, prefinished item, here are eight great ideas to add extra sparkle and take your projects up a notch.
