Halloween “Fairy Light” jars!

I’m a regular on Facebook.  I love seeing photos and videos from Buzzfeed and Tasty, and it never fails that I save some recipe (that sounds yummy but would probably be 1/2 my days allowance of salt or fat) or project (that looks easy but requires stuff I don’t have).  I kept seeing this video tutorial for Fairy Light jars, and I really wanted to do one!  These are perfect with edgelit dies like the Halloween Scenes!

What you’ll need:

-clean mason jars (wide mouth is best)
-lids (I used the plastic screw on ones)
-Krylon Glitter Shimmer spray in Opulent Opal
-Black spray paint
-Moss or twine for the bottom of the jar
-battery operated candle (I used mini flickering lights from Hobby Lobby)
-Basic Black Cardstock
-Halloween Scenes Edgelits dies
-Basic Black ribbon
-Burlap ribbon
-Gluedots and tape runner

Spray 2 light coats of the Krylon Paint onto your glass.  Best to do outdoors with newspaper on the ground.  Let dry for at least an hour, or until no longer sticky.  Spray paint the lid with the black spray paint.

For this light, I die cut 1 witch, 2 fences, a tree, and 5 bats.  For the tree and fences, I left about 1/2 inch extra on the bottom of the cut so I could use it for positioning.

Put your moss/twine down on the bottom of the jar to create something for the candle to rest in.  You could probably use a piece of Styrofoam or similar.

I rounded the fences and let them free float, then put the tree in the center of the 2 fences.  I did add a glue dot to the top of the tree and stuck it to the glass-it helped make the tree more visible.  I affixed the witch and bats to the glass using gluedots.  Ribbon and burlap went around the base of the jar on the outside to hide the moss/empty areas.  Put the light on the moss/twine and add the lid!

Spooky!
