I made this for my little girl who has not had the greatest winter season as far as her health goes, so to take her mind of her aches & pains & to get her to fall asleep, I made her a jar of glowing stars as a nightlight...and wasn't planning on entering it in the contest, but why not? It's totally fun!

I just took some clear glittered resin stars I had & tossed them into a canning jar with one of those battery run tealights you'd put in a jack o lantern. It flickers & glows like magic!



Detail shot of the stars...


And she fell asleep in no time at all with her eyelids getting heavier & heavier watching the star jar twinkling.


I hope you like my little project!

My father was the one to bring magic into my childhood and there is a special place in my heart for anything/anyone that introduces a bit of magic into a child's life.

I think this project does that -- I absolutely love it!

Wouldn't they look cool all lined up in a row on a windowsill? Or as replacements for candles in romantical settings in the bedroom or a quiet 'calgon take me away' bath. They'd be pretty to place on tables at wedding receptions... I could go on and on about how many uses folks could have for these!  Cheesy
