DIY Mason Jar Night Light

For this cool mason jar night light project, you’re going to need the following:

  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Food coloring – learn how to color Mod Podge
  • Glitter
  • Mason Jar
  • Paint Brush
  • Battery Operated Tealight Candle

Getting Started

I picked out some smaller mason jars I had on hand. But an old pickle jar, baby food jar, etc. would work great as well. I selected my Mod Podge of choice and some extra fine glitter.

Time to get crafting!

Jar 1

For the first jar I decided to make it multi-colored. I started off by painting on some Mod Podge in spots, then sprinkling my glitter on top. Then I added some more Mod Podge in spots and sprinkled more glitter.

I did a total of 4 different shades of glitter. Next I shook out any extra glitter.

I let the jar dry overnight, but if you did it first thing in the morning it should be dry by bedtime.

Jar 2

For my second jar I wanted it to be blue. So I pulled out my “handy dandy” sheer Mod Podge and covered the inside of the jar. Then while it was still wet I added my glitter.

My second mason jar night light was the tester, so I didn’t get any step by step pictures.

I let this jar dry several hours as well.

Finishing Touches

Now it’s time to add your tea light!! I didn’t glue it down, just set it inside then added the jar on top. We tested them out in the kids rooms and they work perfect.
