Glow in the Dark Mason Jar table decorations

My girl loves to craft and we’ve been crafting up a storm this week. She loves to help me with the blog. I know that she’ll probably be taking this blog over when I’m ready to retire. She’s as crafty if not craftier than me. She had this idea to break open glow sticks and put them in mason jars. Then when you have a night time party you can set them out. I did two simple video examples of this as well as pictures. Check them out.

First gather your items needed!

Here’s the how to video:

and when you’re done!

How cute are those? Wouldn’t that be a great thing for a birthday party at night or a fun nighttime wedding, etc.

**There are toxic chemicals used in the glow sticks. They say they’re nontoxic and they are as long as they are contained in the glow stick. So as always wear gloves and be careful. Do not roll around in the glow sticks liquid or get it on your skin or in your eyes. It’s just not a good idea. Use caution when making any ideas found on the internet. This is my disclaimer! πŸ˜›

  3. They look so neat in the dark! I can definitely see these as table decorations for parties at night!

  4. I love it! They are perfect in mason jars and I have both of these right now because I bought those glow sticks for the fourth of July!! I’m gonna have to give this a try!

  5. These would be fun for a simmer pool party, wedding table decor, or a glow in the dark birthday party. I haven’t cut open glow Sticks before, do they lose their glowing properties after several hours?

  6. We just did this! My teenager collected all our glow sticks after the fireworks on the 4th, and she got a mason jar and turned it into a glow-in-the-dark one. Her little sister loved it.
