Fairy Lights Mod for Minecraft 1.8/1.7.10


If you find the standard light sources like torches, glowstone and redstone to be boring these days, you might want to check out the Fairy Lights mod for Minecraft. Basically, this mod adds string lights which you can wrap around trees, walls or practically any other flat surface. The colors of these lights can be adjusted with a few clicks, so you can get reds, blues, greens and other lights, even combining different colors within the same string, to make for some truly festive lighting effects. These light strings are crafted with iron ingots and sticks, along with dyes for whatever colors you want in the strand.




You also get fasteners which you can use to stretch your particular fairy light strand, starting at the point where you right click the strand and ending wherever you choose to right click the second time. As a light source, they aren’t much to look at, but the lights added with the Fairy Lights mod make for great decorations, both indoors and outdoors. You could theoretically use them to run along the walls of caves, mineshafts and other underground areas, but you would be better off using standard torches under those conditions. It’s all up to you in the end, though.

  1. Hi!

    I’m on minecraft 1.8 and I get all the lanterns in my inventory, but it doesn’t work when I try to make the “string” to actully place the lanterns on. I’ve tried with both iron ignots + sticks and iron ignots + string, but nothing works. I have tried to re-install it as well

  2. This mod didn’t work for me. It shows the lights in inventory and I can make them just fine but they won’t attach to anything

  3. Excuse me, I can’t make them either. They are just available for selection in creative mode if I search for them but I can’t do anything with them.

  4. Fairy lights not working at all on the 1.8 version. Tried to make the recipe, not even found so it is impossible to do anything. My review of this mod: 0/10 (WORSE MOD EVER)

  5. I am on 1.7.10, and I can’t even get to the title screen for mc. Is there something they just forgot to mention for the download?? I tried going to a few different websites, but I can’t seem to find anything. Anyone know what my issue is? Thx :)!!!!

  6. This mod really has an issue. I can craft them as usual, and for a while it worked. Then, I placed it, and it showed the little grey bulb for a millisecond, and then if flashed away. This happens with all lights, and I still have some of the ones I hung earlier, it just won’t let me place them. I have seen various other youtubers place lights like this (LDshadowlady, YammyXOX, etc). What is happening here?

  7. This didn’t work for me. I just downloaded this and i am screaming because it’s not working. I try to craft the fairy lights and it won’t work please help me.
