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!!!
