Fairy Lights from Recycled Jars
We made some magical fairy lights with glass and plastic jars which are this month’s Project Recycle material! These are not only colourful but easy for Peakles to make as well. They are ideal for decorating the patio or for putting on her bedroom shelf as a nightlight.

How to Make It
Peakles took one of the jars and added some glue to the outside. She then sprinkled some glitter onto some areas and some coloured cellophane to other areas. Once it was dry she added some details with the glass markers. Next, we cut out some tiny fairy wings from the black card and stuck these onto the outside of the jar before adding other details to the jar as well.
Finally, Peakles put the battery operated LED lights into the jars and then switched them on. She loved how the glitter shimmered and sparkled. Peakles also liked the different colours that were projected onto the walls and was delighted to see some of the fairy wings casting shadows as well.
