I intended for this to be a night light, but after making one, I think I will make more as patio luminaries.

These are the materials I used. I was lucky enough to find everything (except the wax paper-- I already had that in my pantry) at the Dollar Store:
A glass jar
Wall stickers - I lucked out on this, because the Dandelion and Dragonfly stickers are sold on Amazon for about $5.50 - yay, for bargains!!
Battery-operated tea light
Wax paper

The process:
Ultimately the jar will be displayed upside-down. Clean the jar, apply the stickers to the outside of the upside-down jar. If the jar has curves and bumps, snip the sticker in these areas to avoid any creases. Insert a roll of wax paper. Place the tea light on the inside of the lid. Close, and display.

It looks splendid. I'd love to add this special glow to my fern garden on a summer evening: I'll give it a go nearer our summer.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
