glowing jars

Aren’t these glow jars sublime?

They take about two minutes to make and cost only 20 cents a piece. How’s that for an enticing DIY wedding project?

These would look amazing at an evening outdoor wedding. Line walkways with them, or place them on tables.

Purchase Glow Sticks

(I got a pack of 15 for $1.50) 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.
