Glass Jar Lantern Step 1: Insert the light sticks
I used two packages of patriotic glow sticks – each includes 6 mini glow sticks about the length of a bracelet: 2 red, white and sapphire.

Instead of doubling the bracelets, you can also use sticks as long as a necklace.

PROFESSIONAL ADVICE: buy more glow sticks. Of the 12 glow sticks I bought, 5 turned out to be useless

Break the sticks and shake them to activate the glow. Put them in your old jars.

Glass Jar Lantern Step 2:

Fill the jars with water and close the lids
Fill the jars with water just below the edges.

If desired, you can add biodegradable glitter and a few drops of dish soap to the jars.

When shaken, the sequins shimmer in the light, and dish soap helps them stay suspended.

That’s all! It couldn’t be easier than it is now.

Use lanterns to decorate tables outdoors, line paths or use them to mark important things in the dark so as not to get lost and stumble over peril.

These red, white and sapphire glow stick lanterns are the perfect simple product that can be made at the last minute with the kids on the fourth of July. All you need are empty cans, water and glow sticks from the dollar store to make this simple DIY on July 4th for Independence Day.
