Pinterest Fairies!

I recently stumbled upon a pin from Pinterest that lead me to this blog HERE for making fairies in mason jars! The photo shown below is what captured my attention.

Super cute right!?  I thought, "Now that is something I can do!"
I followed the steps and am sharing them with you today.

Number 4 should be sCissors.. incase you are googling sissors.
 

I accidentally got some of the glow stuff on the carpet-- turns out this is not that big of a deal, other than it stinks temporarily.  The glow wears off so its like it never happened!



I am not sure how the gal from the pinterest pin got her jar to look so amazing.  I think prior to shaking these were pretty neat, but when you shake them-- the glitter sticks to the sides of the jar and while the jar does in fact glow for a little bit- I had questions from my kids.... "Where are the fairies!?"  "When will the fairies come out?"
I hate to deem this as a pinterest FAIL because it was fun to explore and try this out.  I just am curious if anyone else has tried this and if so, what did you do?  Did yours turn out magically like the pinterest photo?  I thought about adding water, maybe more glitter, but I just don't know what would have helped.
It was fun and lately, anything with a mason jar is really cool in my world.
Pin It

Aww well they looked like they had fun anyway!!
Have you seen that pinterest fail site, www.pinterestfail.com ? It's pretty funny.
I think that picture on pinterest was doctored.

What a great pin. I must do this with the kids.

The picture that was pinned was probably photo shopped a little. It looks fun!

The Pinterest photo is Photoshopped- sorry! I'm racking my brain on how you could keep the glowstick liquid from globbing....uhm...yeah, I've got nothing. Sorry! At least the kids got to make something fun and different. :)

I'm going to have to agree with Beth and say that picture has got to be photoshopped. There is no way she got it to look that perfect.
At least the kids had a ton of fun :D

This is too cute! I can't believe how fast Reese seems to be growing.. she's changing so much! Boys seem to not really change as much as girls because I feel like Addison is changing every day! This would be so fun to do at night! : )

I think yours look great even though it's not quite like the pinterest photo. The pinterest one looks a little fake actually...

You know what's really great in a mason jar? Ice cold sweet tea. :o)

This reminds me of going to a fast food place and seeing something YUMMY up on the helpful picture menu. Then you get your food and it's flat, barely any meat, and doesn't look appetizing! Ha!

Ok for real though ... It did look very pretty! Not sure how to make it like the inspiration one. I'm wondering if that pic isn't photo shopped?

This is so amazing! I really would love to try this with my brothers... I was thinking a night light. Does the light last long?
I found your blog from Bloggers Unite :)

Judging by the smiles on your kiddos faces - they had a great time making this craft! Isn't that frustrating to think that the photo on Pinterest may have been photoshopped?
