This Instructable is about how to make a pretty little light for Christmas.
It is very easy to make, and cheap too. It makes a nice gift and is very customizable.
I used silhouette Christmas motives but one could just a well use colored pictures or even photos to personalize them.
Step 1: Materials
your printed motive
paper cutter (optional)
cylindrical twist off jar
double sided sticky tape or glue
muffin paper cup
Ruler or measuring tape (both would be best)
Step 2: Measure
You need to know how long the cylindrical part is
You should also measure the circumference of the jar (this is where the measuring tape comes in handy)
You should measure the jar BEFORE you print the motive.
You need to know how large it may be.
Depending on the circumference of the jar you might have to print the motive in landscape mode instead of portrait like I did. I used rather small glasses so the paper was long enough, but if you use a larger jar the paper might be too short and won't cover the whole area.
Step 3: Cut Motive
Use the measurements from the previous step to make it fit into the jar.
Step 4: Insert Motive
If it doesn't fit, take it out and cut it a little smaller so it fits.
The paper should lay itself smoothly against the glass.
Step 5: Make the Lid
Stick the muffin paper to the lid and push it down the sides to make it look like in picture 2
Step 6: Turn the LED On
I also decorated the lid with stickers.
Step 7: Lights Off !!
Sorry for the blurry pictures, my camera does a bad job in the dark.
Step 8: Make More!
Thanks for reading!
Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.
If you make this, I would love to see pictures :-)
