Step 1: Materials

For making Fairy dust jars you will need: mini jars (I got them from the dollar store for a pack of six for $1.50) glitter, glue, and a paintbrush ( or something to put glue in the bottle)

Step 2: Glue

Using the paintbrush, coat the inside of the bottle. Make sure to get the bottom and the sides. Go as high as you like.

Step 3: +Glitter!+

Now here's the fun part, pick a colour of glitter and shake it into the bottle (this might be tricky but try not to get it all over the place) if your parent is strict about glitter, then make sure you are doing this on a newspaper or something. Put the lid on and shake it up!

Step 4: Done!

Now your Fairy dust jar is completed! Have fun making your own and add your own variations! You can also add rhinestones, sequins and gems!
