I want to thank my daughters for this post. My two girls are a little crafty, and they come up with some great ideas. Wonder where they get that from? This week, they wanted to bless their friend with a sweet, turning 13, birthday gift. They made their friend these glow jars and they were a big hit at the party. I thought it would be a fun craft for all of you to do with your kids or for your next party! They're easy and inexpensive to make. Don't you just love those two combinations!
First, you'll need a few jars. I always keep jars for such an occasion. By the way, the easiest way to take those sticky labels off is to fill the jar with water, above the label, and microwave it for about 2 minutes. The label should peel off pretty easily.
Here are the other things you'll need. Glow sticks, straws, and glitter. You can find all of those things at the Dollar store.
Crack your glow sticks to get them glowing. Cut off one end of the stick and allow the glow liquid to drip into your jars.
Cut off the other end of the glow stick and attach a straw. Blow through the straw to push the rest of the liquid into the jar.
Add a little glitter...or a lot of glitter! That's up to you.
I spray painted the lids for the girls. It was the least I could do!
It's a good thing for them they have a mom that always has spray paint around.
Cover the jars with the lids and shake up the glow liquid. It's that easy!
They will glow for a few hours, perfect for that night party. You can also add ribbon and set a few together to light up a walkway. It was a fun project for the girls, and I love seeing them work together. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
