Moonbeams in a jar

You will need:

  • Empty jam jar or similar
  • PVA glue
  • Silver & white tissue paper
  • Stars or sequins
  • Kitchen foil
  • Bicycle light or similar


Take a clean, empty glass jar (label removed) and apply a generous coat of PVA glue (thinned with a splash of water)

Cover the jar with small pieces of silver and white tissue paper just as you like

Apply one further coat of PVA glue to give a glossy hard-wearing finish

Add a few silver stars or sequins for a bit of daylight sparkle

Coat the jar’s lid with PVA glue then cover it with kitchen foil

When the whole thing is dry, pop in a bicycle (white) light and screw on the lid
