Glowing Fairy Jars

Fairy jars – I remember as a child daydreaming about fairies and other little creatures that could be hiding in the forest. I so badly wanted to be able to play with them and have little fairy friends. I’m sure that I wasn’t the only little girl daydreaming about fairies. Making these glowing fairy jars is a spectacular way to celebrate the magically creative mind of your children. They will love playing with these fairy jars. Just imagine all of the stories and adventures that will be growing inside their little heads. And these fairy jars would be great as a gift or to put inside a party bag.

How To Make The Glowing Fairy Jar

Start by turning on your submersible LED light. The lights generally last around 60 hours. Place a good amount of mounting putty to the bottom of the LED light and stick it the inside of your jar, right at the bottom.

Next, fill the jar 3/4 full with water.

Add around a tablespoon of glycerin to the water. This amount will vary depending on how large your jar is. If you don’t have Glycerin handy, you can use clear dish soap or light corn syrup instead. The idea is to allow the glitter and confetti to float around before sinking to the bottom of the jar.

Now add the glitter and confetti. Try to use small, light glitter and confetti, as it will float around for longer below sinking that heavier glitter and confetti.

Fill the rest of the jar up with water, leaving a little space at the top for shaking.

You can seal the lid with clear, waterproof glue if you are not planning on using the jar again.


Now you have a beautiful and magical glowing fairy jar. Shake it up and watch the glitter float around. Perfect for kids to play with (and the adults too).
