    Fairy fans will love making their very own lantern that sparkles by day and glows at night with this stunning craft project.

    It's so simple and fun to make and the end result is extremely effective: just stick the fairy to the inside front of the jar using PVA glue, mix some glitter into the remaining PVA glue and then leave it to dry. Repeat this until the whole jar is nicely covered.

    Leave to dry again and then place the tealight in the jar. Hang the lantern up and the fairies will come visiting before you know it!
