Harvest Fairy Lantern

Supplies needed

1 mason jar – (any clean jar with a lid can be used)
White acrylic paint & a paint brush
Decor of choice: branches, small foam craft pumpkins, miniature trees, baby owl, etc.
1/2 cup of sea salt
Tacky Glue / Craft Glue & clear tape

***Optional – ONLY WITH ADULT SUPERVISION***
1 battery pack of fairy lights
Drill & hot glue

This craft can be made without the lights (if unavailable or for younger children) to create a magical snow globe!

Step 1

Paint both sides of your lid white and let dry.

*Optional- have an adult drill a hole in the middle of your jar’s lid big enough to insert lights. String the lights through the hole, leaving the battery pack outside.

Step 2

Glue all of your decor in the middle of the inside of your painted lid.
Make sure to leave enough room near the edges so you can close the lid properly.

Step 3

Carefully pour the needed amount of sea salt.
Use between 1/4-1/2 cup depending on the size of your jar.
Turn the lid upside down when your decor is dry.
Insert the decor into the jar.
*insert the optional lights at this point.
With or without lights, tightly twist the lid on and cover the hole with clear tape.

Step 4

Turn on the optional fairy lights.
Turn your jar over and watch the snow fall.

Enjoy the magic of the Harvest Season!
