Looking for an impressively easy DIY lighting idea for your patio? These DIY mason jar glow lights have an incredible WOW factor, considering the little time and effort required to make them. Unlike many DIY projects that come with long supply lists and will send you to a variety of stores shopping for supplies, this craft uses only a jar, some colorful glow in the dark paint. An inexpensive and fun idea, the project is fun for adults but easy enough for children to help with. Creativity is not recommended, but not even required. This is one of those rare DIYs that is really difficult to mess up. To create the cool lighting effect, you simply “charge” your lights in the sun or under a bright light bulb. The glowing colorful paint dots on your jar will glow for hours. Be sure to check out the DIY tutorial video to see how easy these are to make, then check out the step by step tutorial for written instructions and a supply list.
Your DIY mason jar lights are sure to be enjoyed by all. These lights are perfect for outdoor summer barbecues, lighting dark walkways, mesmerizing poolside lighting, and pretty much any other outdoor scenario where you might need subtle lighting.
This cool glow in the dark craft is a neat project idea for kids and teens, but I have to admit that adults find glow in the dark fairies to be mesmerizing as well…. These fairy glow jars are much fun for after dark outdoors ideas, but they also make great DIY home decor for kids rooms or dorm decor (meaning they are great crafts for teens to make, too). I do so love this DIY project because it gives my kids an activity to do during daylight hours, and then something to play with and entertain them once the sun goes down and I have exhausted my entertainment ideas as well as patience for the day. If you are planning an outdoor cookout with your adult friends and your kids will be in tow, this project is a super one for the children to go off and play with after dinner. Check out the tutorial video for an easy to follow step by step instructions and be sure to save this one to your list of favorite mason jar crafts.
