Are you looking for your next craft project to make? How about you try making this DIY fairy night light from DIY Lily Ardor on Youtube. You only need a jar and a handful of materials easily found in your home to make this stunning night light. It’s also a good gift idea for your family and friends. Learn how to make this by following the tutorial below.



  • jar with a lid
  • tea light
  • fairy printable
  • scissors
  • brushes
  • copper and gray paint
  • glow-in-the-dark paint (in the color natural)
  • pen (or marker)
  • stick
  • plastic bag
  • cardboard
  • foam sheet
  • tape
  • glue gun
  • some moss and greenery
  • needle nose plyers and metal wire (for the handle)
  • twine, glass vial, key (for the magic fairy sound)


Step 1

Attach the lid to the jar, then drill a hole big enough for the on and off switch. Get the glue gun and use it to attach the tea light to the bottom of the lid. Glue some more to cover any sharp edges. Trace the circle (lid) out of the cardboard and cut it out. Next, cut out your fairy printable and attach it using tape to the foam sheet. After this, cut out the fairy again, this time, making one out of the foam sheet. Take your cardboard circle and glue some moss and greenery onto it. Add a stand to the fairy and glue it to one side of the moss circle. Next, grab your brush and apply a thin coat of glow-in-the-dark paint to the inside of the jar. Mix some copper and gray paint. After this, start making the antiquing brush using a stick and a piece of plastic bag. Apply hot glue around the stick and wrap the plastic around it.

Step 2

Dip the plastic brush into the gray paint and dab most of it off onto another paper. (You only need the tiniest bit of the paint to make the jar look rustic.) After this, apply it to the inside of the jar, just around the top and bottom, avoiding the middle. Next, insert the fairy inside the jar. Take a wire and cut enough length to make the handle. Secure the wire on both ends and apply some greenery using a glue gun. To attach the key and glass vial, remove the handle and wrap it with twine, then attach the key and glass vial with some twine and glue. Finally, put back the handle into the jar. Your fairy light is now done.
