Fairy Jar Lanterns

My daughter sent me a link to a video, which you can see here, by Nifty.  My twin granddaughters are in their new bedroom, which is a fairy themed room, and Grandma is making these Fairy Jars for them.
 Here is a picture of my set up started.  I sent this to my daughter, so she could see that the project is finished.  I found the jars at Target for $3 each.  I painted the lids silver, and used white paint inside the jars.  I had some Silhouette fairy files, so I used them, grass and butterflies for the project.
 After I adhered the die cuts inside the jars I had to test them out.  I used a larger battery operated candle inside the jar.
 Here are different views of the jar...
 ...One of the fairies had mushrooms, so I used them too!
 I wantend to add some flowers to the project, so I decorated the lid.
 Here are the finished jars.
 I used a coat hanger for the handle.  The flowers are from Recollections.  The brads are, I think, Basic Grey.  The white floral embellishments are from Jolee's.
 I don't know where I got the leaves, sorry about that.  The silver glitter Washi tape is by Heidi Swap.
 I painted a wooden base to set the jar on, and thought that it needed decoration with the flowers.  I think it turned out very pretty!
 Here is an inside shot of what it looks like.  I added moss inside, which filled out the bottom and made it look very cool when I put the candle back in it.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this project.  It was super fun to make.  Now I just have to figure out how to get it to the girls through the mail without destroying them!  Wish me luck!!!

Stay crafty, my friends!!
