Glow Jars {Intimate Weddings DIY Tutorial}

Aren’t these glow jars sublime? We found the tutorial over on Intimate Weddings. They take about two minutes to make and cost only 20 cents a piece. How’s that for an enticing DIY project? These would look amazing at an evening outdoor wedding. Line walkways with them, or place them on tables. Or you could easily use them as decorations for Halloween. Line the pathway to your home for an eerily beautiful look.

You could also use glow-in-the-dark paints to make the glowing effect last a bit longer. Or different shaped glass jars to change things up. All in all this is a very simple DIY project that most any adult could do. And the results are fantastic! Sure to impress any guests and leave them wondering how you did it. 

Make sure to check out Intimate Wedding's DIY Wedding section on their website. They have some great ideas on ways for you to add those personal touches to your special day. 

DIY Glow Jars Tutorial

For each glow jar you will need:
  • a jar
  • two Glow Sticks (check out your local 99 cent store)
  • scissors
  • rubber gloves
  • safety glasses
Disclaimer: This is a project meant to be done by an adult – not a child!

Purchase Glow Sticks and dig a jar out of your cupboard.

Grab two glow sticks and cut at one end. Make sure they are inside the jar when you cut them. I used rubber gloves because I didn’t want to get the glowing liquid on my hands.

Shake each glow stick while holding inside jar until contents are empty. You will notice little pieces of what looks like plastic along with the liquid. One reader said this is actually glass, so be careful. You will dump these out later.

Head to your garbage and dump out the little pieces of plastic. Swirl liquid around the jar.

That’s it. You’re done! Go and find a dark place and enjoy the glow! (Note: These will glow for about an hour.)
