Step By Step Direction – With Pictures
My childhood was filled with fun summer nights spent chasing fireflies and putting them in jars. I would fall asleep watching them flicker then set them free in the morning. Now that I have grandkids I am having just as much fun watching them chase fireflies. I decided to make firefly jars as a project at “Grandma Camp” and they were able to do it themselves with very little help from me. I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed making it. We will be sharing more craft projects in the coming weeks.
- Plastic mayonnaise jar with lid\
- wire or rope
- wire cutters
- hammer and nail or drill
- stencils and glow in the dark paint
Make two holes in lid for wire using a hammer and nail or a drill. If you decide to use rope you will need to use a drill bit to make holes large enough to accomadate the rope. Make additional holes for ventilation.
Push the wire, or rope, through the holes you made. Twist the ends, clip, and then push up into the lid. If you use rope tie knots after you push it through each hole.
If you want to add a design tape a stencil to the outside of the jar and paint it with glow in the dark paint.
