Imagine how enchanting the backyard of your house would look when it’s decorated with a mason jar night light glorifying the outdoor ambiance. Taking help from NoBSMom, I made my version of a glittery night light with the nifty jars few weeks ago. Scroll down and learn the simple trick of turning mason jars into glowing wonders.

How to Make a Mason Jar Night Light

Things needed

  • Mason jars (I picked two half pint jars)
  • Flameless tea lights (I needed just two)
  • Glitters (use as many shades as possible for a multicolor effect)
  • Paintbrush
  • Decoupage glue


  1. Apply the glue to the inside of the jars with the paintbrush and then add some glitters.
  2. Cover the jars with the lids and shake well till the glitters get scattered all over the inside. (You can also roll around the jars until the insides are coated properly with the glitters)
  3. Remove the lids, pour some more glue into the jars, and sprinkle all the remaining glitters.
  4. Allow the jars to dry overnight.
  5. Switch on the tea lights and place them on the inside of the jar lids.
  6. Put the glittery mason jars on the top.
