Camping Craft: Mason Jar Lights
Activity DesignerJulie Kirkwood
This is an easy and fun craft to take along when you go camping, or to brighten up any summer night. Colorful tape over mason jars with glow sticks inside create a dramatic effect to light up the night.
What You'll Need
How We Did It
I used jelly sized jars, purchased in a flat of 12 from a local grocery store, but you can use any size jars. The glow sticks are from the dollar store. I used 3 types of colorful tape: duct tape, packaging tape and washi tape. They all look great on the jars. The duct tape requires cutting with scissors. The packaging tape has its own cutting blade. The washi tape was the easiest to work with as it tears easily and doesn't require scissors.
SAFETY TIP: Place tape on the bottom of the jar as well. The tape will hold the pieces together if the jar gets dropped and broken.
