Glow Stick Lanterns

Who would have thought something so easy could be so pretty?  

These gorgeous lights are made from glow sticks & mason jars.  Just add a little bit of water to the bottom of a jar & cut open a few glow sticks & dump the insides in.  Seal the jar, and give it a good shake.

You can add just one color, or mix colors.  My personal favorite is red, white, & blue.  It makes a gorgeous pinkish glow, like the one at the top of this post.

You can put these on your front porch or give them to the kiddos to take with them.  Cuuuutteeeee, huh?
