A DIY Fairy Lantern reminds me of childhood and stories of fantasy. It is really easy to make this lantern. You don't need a lot of materials and can personalize it as you desire. I made mine in a plastic bottle so it is very kid friendly and will not break.
- bottle or mason jar
- mod podge
- paint brush
- super glue
- fairy cut out
- tissue paper
- battery operated flicker light
Start with a clean bottle or jar
Using super glue, adhere the fairy to the inside of the jar. Don't worry about the glue showing.
Cut the tissue paper to fit around the jar.
Cover the outside with mod podge
Line up the tissue paper and wrap it around the jar. Align the top edge, don't worry about the bottom, it get's tucked under. Wrinkles add to the personality, just be careful not to tear the tissue paper. Then cover it again with mod podge. Allow it to dry.
Decorate the rim as you desire. I used ribbon and paper cut out flowers.
Insert the flicker light and you are done!
