I bought a necklace for my MIL but it turned out to be really bad so I returned it. At 10 pm Christmas Eve, I decided to make a Fairy Globe after watching Darbin Orvar’s video on making a really beautiful but simple LED Fairy Light Globe:

I couldn’t find the glass ornaments anywhere locally but when I was at Michael’s, I saw a 4”-ish fish bowl for $1.62. I had the LEDs as well so I searched around the garage frantically. Found a nice solid chunk of cherry and cut out the opening for the globe in the walnut. After gluing the two pieces of wood together, I pattern routed the rest of the hole in the cherry. The battery pack is attached underneath through the cherry (routed out a holder area) with velcro. Finished with 3 coats of spray lacquer and hot-glued the globe. Not bad for a REALLY last minute present and MIL was happy with it.
