How to Make Glowing Jars

Intro: How to Make Glowing Jars

They take about two minutes to make and cost only 20 cents a piece. How’s that for an enticing DIY project?
These would look amazing at any outdoor party. Line walkways with them, or place them on tables.

Materials:

Step 1:

Grab two glow sticks and cut at one end. Make sure they are inside the jar when you cut them. I used rubber gloves because I didn’t want to get the glowing liquid on my hands.

Step 2:

Shake each glow stick while holding inside jar until contents are empty.

Step 3:

Swirl liquid around the jar.

Step 4:

Done! Place them at your night event!

Hiya,

Question here:

If I'm right, the glowsticks only glow for so many hours, is there a way to make this so it lasts longer??

If glow sticks haven't changed since I was a kid, you can put them in the freezer to "recharge"; then they have another couple of hours of *glowiness* :)

But no, other than that you can't make them glow longer, because of the chemical reaction that runs within the sticks.
