Pier 1 Glimmer Strings Frugal Dupe


Last Christmas I was intrigued by the Glimmer Strings Battery Powered LED Light strands that I saw at Pier 1. But, at $12.95 for the shortest strand, Glimmer Strings didn’t fit into my decorating budget.

Luckily, I found a frugal dupe….

Pier 1 Glimmer Strings Frugal Dupe




These battery-powered light strings are studded with super tiny LEDs that are just a bit larger than a grain of rice and strung on a silver or copper thin wire that allows you to shape and position the LEDS to your liking. They are perfect for decorating with LED light without have to worry about where to hide the cord. Truly beautiful to decorate centerpieces, frame a mirror, or even just placed or wound around a pretty glass vase.

But I didn’t pay $12.95 per sting. I found these on eBay for just $3.72 shipped!  I ended up buying 5 strands. I prefer warm white, but they are available in many different colors for all your decorating needs. Shipping from Hong Kong/China takes about 20 days, so order ahead and be prepared for when you feel inspired.

These light strands require 4 AA batteries and the ones I purchased will last for about a week when used continuously (I love them so much I invested in rechargeable batteries)

Usually, string lights would be stored with the other holiday decorations, but this year these are in my craft closet for whenever I think a little light will create a bit of magic ;)
