Make a storage jar or nightlight

To make a storage jar or nightlight you need:

  • A clean empty glass jar and lid
  • stickers, marker pens and/or wool
  • a string of battery operated mini fairy lights

Decorate your jar using stickers, marker pens (the best are the ones made especially for using on glass and plastic) or by tying wool round it. You can also decorate the lid.

You now have a jar ready to keep things in, or add the lights to make it into a nightlight. Send a photo to us at and we will share your films with our followers on social media. You can make jars for presents too.
