These are so easy to make and Oriental Trading made it even easier by shipping most of the supplies needed right to my doorstep.

This time of year is so busy and I am always looking for ways to save time and money! First, make sure the jar is free of any stickers or residue and spray the INSIDE of the jar with spray adhesive.

Give it a good coat then add the glitter until you get the desired thickness. I actually only use one coat of glitter because if you use too much the light will not be as bright.

I have seen these made using battery operated or LED tea lights placed in the bottom, but I find it is a pain to have to get the light in and out to turn it on or off.

So I was thrilled when I read about the Submersible LED lights. Not only do they last longer, but you strictly twist them to turn them on or off and you can glue it to the underside of the lid so it is super easy to get to.

I used white glitter and purple vinyl for the larger jar and silver glitter and red glitter vinyl for the smaller one. They even look pretty with the light off.

I plan to make some for boys as well maybe green with a Ninja Turtle or a silver and black Batman-so many options! I used my Cricut Explore Air to create the images.

I LOVE having a Cricut as there are so many things you can use it for. This would make a great Christmas present for yourself! Click the image below to go to the Cricut Homepage.
