Glow sticks have a reputation for lighting up everything from tame kids' parties to raucous raves, but this craft cracks their potential wide open -- quite literally.
You just need a clear mason jar or bottle, making sure that it's nice and clean, and a little time. You'll also want to be sure to grab a nice variety of colors of glow sticks. The more the better! You can fill a whole shelf with a beautiful galaxy of glowing jars.
Be sure to wear gloves while handling the chemicals.
Carefully cut into the sticks.
And allow the glowing goo to drip into your bottle.
Don't let it just drip to the bottom, though.
You want to make sure the sides are good and coated.
Allow them to sit outside or in an open area to dry.
Then wait for lights out to see them light up!
The gorgeous effect will brighten any room.
