Glow in the dark glass jars

They may not be bright enough to light up a room, but these glow-in-the-dark glass jars will certainly create an unusual feature. Try them as a centrepiece for an evening meal with friends - they are sure to get conversation flowing!


I think that these jars would make wonderful night lights for young children. They would stay charged-up for enough time for a toddler to fall asleep - and don't require any electricity.

Lissie Ellie uses glow in the dark paint to create these beautiful glow in the dark jars.





1. Dab the inside of your glass jar with spots of glow in the dark paint. The more dots you add the more interesting they become.

2. Let the paint dry and then 'charge' up under a bright light., or even better, charge them up in sunlight.

You will find Rust-Oleum glow in the dark paint at your local Builders Warehouse. Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow In The Dark glows for up to 2 hours. Apply to wood, metal, plaster, masonry or unglazed ceramic. Washes with soap and water.
