I love glitter! I have many empty mason jars, and a few battery operated tea lights that I am not using. I love the blues and green glitter he used, but I'll also make one in purple and silver. I will make one with fall colors, and another in Christmas colors. These are so easy to make I'm sure I'll make many.

What a fun idea and what a fun light for an outside table on the back porch at night or at our table during a summer camp trip. With or without the kids, I want to give this a try, but instead of mixing the glitter colors, I think I will try making one with red glitter, one with blue and one with silver to give the lights a patriotic flare.

Awesome idea, thanks for sharing!
