Fairy Jar

The Mrs.
by The Mrs.
This is a great way to upcycle some of your empty jars!
Makes a great gift.
Even helps little ones who may be afraid of the darkness in their rooms!
You may use any glue.

These are the ones I used.
Coat the jar with glue or modge podge. (On the OUTSIDE of the jar!)
Place white tissue paper in a SINGLE layer on jar.

When dry, trim off excess tissue paper at rim of jar. I used a razor blade to do so.
I glued felt to the bottom to protect furniture.
Coat 1 side of fairy cut out with glue. I used brush on nail glue that dries clear amd fast.
Hold in place, for a few seconds where you want it to stay.
When dry, it will look like this when sun shines thru jar.

Now you are ready to embellish the outside of your jar!
This is what inside of jar should look like!
Place BATTERY OPERATED candle inside jar.
This is a shot in complete darkness.
I added glitter, twine,leaves and flowers for my embellishments.
