In order to craft hanging lights you first must craft the lights. Lights come in six standard variants, fairy light, paper lantern, orb lantern, flower light, ornate lantern, and oil lantern. There are also 4 spooky lights, spider light, ghost light, jack o'lantern, skull light, witch light, snowflake light, icicle light, and meteor 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.
