Twinkle Lights Glittered Valentine Jars


Sparkle and shine this Valentine's Day with these Twinkle Lights Glittered Valentine Jars.


While I'm not big on Valentine's Day, I however decorate my home and celebrate my own way, after all I have kids and I don't want them to be disillusioned about the day. I love going into the stores and seeing them all decorated for the big day, I love the pinks and the reds and I also like decorating my entry way table. However, I love mixing and matching store bought items with home made. This year I decided that I wanted to do something a wee bit different. I had a few mason jars and some LED lights that I picked up at Christmas for another craft project, and inspiration hit. I knew exactly just what I was going to do with them. This Valentine's Day project literally took about 10 minutes from start to finish for each one, and they looked really good to boot! I'll link all supplies so you can make your very own twinkle lights glittered valentine jars.

Twinkle Lights Glittered Valentine Jars

Supplies Needed

Extra Fine Glitter
Mason Jars
LED Moon Lights
Non-Aerosol Hair Spray
Cricut or Stickers
Glue Gun


Note: I wanted my glitter to be on the inside of my jar and not on the outside, since I was going to use my Cricut to add a bit of charm on the outside instead. While you can use Mod Podge or even glue on the inside, it takes quite a bit of work. A quick search on google for an easier way led me to this quick and easy way of using a non-aerosol hair spray. I picked up the Suave Max Hold Hairspray at Walmart and it worked amazingly well!


Directions:

Step 1
Pour some of the hair spray into your jar and swirl it around covering all the sides, then pour out the excess.

Step 2
Add your extra fine glitter on the inside and swirl it around as well until all the sides are "glittered". Let it dry for about 20 minutes. To get it to dry quicker you can use a hair dryer for about 2-3 minutes.

Step 3
Cut out your design that you want to use on your Cricut machine if you have one. If you don't, then you can use script letters or any sticker of your preference. With your jar cleaned, place the sticker or your Cricut design on the front of your jar in any location that you prefer.

Step 4
The LED lights are battery operated. Attach the battery pack on the cover of your jar and place the LED lights in the jar. Turn the lights on and you're done.


If you would prefer not to use stickers or don't have a Cricut, you can decorate it with some ribbon for some pizzazz or leave as is. No matter how you do it, it's going to be one craft that will have everyone asking "where did you get it?". So let that crafty side show and get into the Valentine Day spirit.
