Fairy Lights adds decorative hanging lights that can have any combination of six light variants each with one of the sixteen dye colors.
In order to craft hanging lights you first must craft the lights. Lights come in many variants, fairy light, heart light, moon light, star light, paper lantern, orb lantern, flower light, candle lantern, oil lantern, snowflake light, icicle lights, and meteor light. There are also spooky lights, spider light, ghost light, jack o'lantern, skull light, witch light.
Fairy lights are crafted by a horizontal combination of iron ingot, string or stick, iron ingot, along with any combination of lights to specify a pattern (left-right, top-down). If glowstone is included the hanging lights will twinkle. If string is used there will be slack in the connection and if a stick is used the connection will be straight. The hanging lights item will only show the first four light colors, but the most lights that can be crafted is eight by placing a hanging lights in a crafting table with eight lights.
Here are the light recipes where the red dye in the recipes can be any dye.
Example Hanging Lights recipes
Letter Bunting, Vine & Tinsel Garland
Here are some example pennant bunting recipes.
Fairy Lights Usage
Right click the hanging lights, garland, or bunting on the side of a block, or an existing fastener to place a fastener, now there will be a connection from the fastener to you. From then you right click on another side of a block, or an existing fastener, to complete the connection. The maximum length of a fairy light strand is 32 blocks.
The slack of hanging lights, garland, or bunting can be increased by right clicking it with string and decreased by right clicking with a stick. Hanging lights can be turned on and off by right clicking.

Fabric please :(
PLEASE update this for 1.19.3 tysm this mod is so cute i swear
They dont work in 1.19.2 :(
I wish this was on Fabric, was one of my favourite mods to play with.
do the lights jingle/play music? if so how? because when it was sunrise the lights started a tune and then i was placing some more and it played all the things she said by t.A.T.u. (for reference im using other mods and specifically these were the paper lanterns
hello dear fairy light producers there seems to be a problem with the 1.19.2 forge version i dont know if its my other mods but if i try to place any of the lights on strings it only places one of the gray connector peices and nor the cable or the lights even attemp to place (its not a visual bug i tried)

I am also experiencing this. Love this mod by the way, was so happy to see it updated!
are twinkling lights gonna be added into newer versions?
In reply to corrppses:
I was looking for this to, turns out the images here on CF are outdated, twinkle lights you get now by adding it to the light ingredient itself, for example if you want jack o'Lantern ones to twinkle you need to craft a jack o'lantern item thingy, then when that is crafted you need to put that in to your crafting grid with glowstone to get twinkle on it and after that you do the step with the iron string iron recipe. Hope this makes any sense to you :)
I love the mod! I'm not sure if it is my Minecraft but on 1.19.2 when playing multiplayer, the lights break to where if one person puts it down the other person can't see its just the stand.
In reply to xotic_allie:
We're having the same issue here on version 1.19.2! Only one player can see the lights. But everyone can see all the lights if we put them on hanging lights. We are waiting for solutions!
Greetings, I think the work you have done is excellent. I have a query, I am in version 1.18.2 and I see that Letter Bunting cannot be more than 9 characters.
It seems to me that before you could write more, is there any way to put more?
Can there be a 1.8.9 version of this mod please?
Would it be possible to add the ability to dye existing Fairy Lights by crafting a white Fairy Light with a dye? This could be a micro-update for all versions.
Can you make 1.19 version please?
There's a problem when playing in 1.12.2. I don't know if it's due to an error with one of my mods in my pack, but I can only place down bunting. I can't place any of the other lights
Happy to see it updated to 1.19.2, can't wait to add it to my pack
