The broken glowsticks laying...
If you use thicker glowsticks...

This idea was originally adopted from something we saw on Pinterest, but it looked so rad we had to give it a try! Here's how FOAMCommunity member Samantha created the D.I.Y. Galaxy Mason Jar project"

What You'll Need
-Mason jar
-Glow sticks
-Loose glitter

How to Make It:
1. Cut your glow sticks in half and drain the liquid into the bottom of the mason jar. For thicker sticks, cut in the middle. For thinner sticks, snip multiple times as they don't release liquid as well. Do this carefully!

2. Dump loose glitter into the mason jar with the glow stick liquid.

3. Screw on the mason jar lid securely, then shake well.

4. Turn off the lights and check out your creation!

Tip: These would make great outdoor lighting at a summer BBQ hanging from trees!

Thanks Samantha!

How long did they last? Did you have to activate the glow sticks before you put the contents in the jar? Thanks!

Hey Rachael! Yes you have to crack the glowsticks before putting them inside, and it lasted about 3 hours, I suppose it will vary depending on the type of glowsticks you use! :)
