Kids crafts; How to make your own custom night light

Updated on February 17, 2012

Are you or your children scared of the dark? I am! So I am here to calm those fears and give you and your kids a fun craft to do. You only need three things that's how easy it is. We will be making this craft on a mason jar, you will be using glow in the dark paint. You can make any designs or patterns on your mason jar, they wil all look beautiful! I like the look of small little dots all over mine just because it's a little more decorative. Another thing I like to do is make a bunch of these with different colors and put them all around my room, its safer than candles and its also romantic and cool. These night light also make great gifts. You could give them to people with the paint, jar, brushes, and directions as a DIY gift. Or you could give it to them already made whatever you like. If you are interested read below for the things you need and how to do this craft! Make a day of it and have fun I hope you enjoy making these, they all turn out really good when there in the dark.

Things you will need and directions♥

Things you need:

Glass jars/ mason jars

Glow in the dark paint ( I like to use poliglow paint)

Paint brush


Step one, wash out your jars and clean then well. Then shake your paint bottle before using and after that get your paint brush and add pretty designs or dots to the outside of your jar. The more dots you make the more beautiful it will be.
