Illuminated Fairy Jar DIY
What you need:
- Jars (I prefer plastic storage jars for kids)
- Mod Podge or glue
- Paint brush
- Fine glitter
- Fairy silhouettes
- Fabric flowers
- Hot glue
- Tea light battery candles
Using a foam paint brush line the inner walls of the jar with Mod Podge, make sure it is a thin layer.
Sprinkle glitter into the jar and close the lid. Shake the glitter until the entire inside of the jar is coated. Discard any excess glitter.
While the inside of the jar dries, print and cut out any silhouette. We used butterflies and a fairy with stars! Just Google the type of silhouette you want to use. Make sure to adjust the print size for each image so that it will fit into your jar (you may need to print at 50-75%).
After you cut out the silhouette, spread a thin layer of mod podge over the top of the silhouette. Press the silhouette into the jar. Allow to dry.
Using hot glue, embellish the jar with moss and fabric flowers!
Light the jars in the evening with battery operated tea light candles. So pretty! Your guests will love them!
