Hi everyone! Can you believe that March is already here? In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating a glowing jar with a silhouette that looks like there’s a leprechaun inside!


This project is easy and I think kids would really enjoy it! As a child, my friend and I were always determined to catch a leprechaun on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day each year. We thought if we could build a trap that was just right, we’d catch one for sure. For some reason, we never succeeded… 🙂 but I know we would have loved to have one of these leprechaun jars back then!



  • Mason jar or other clear container
  • Green acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush(es)
  • Black paper or black paint
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Black spanish moss (optional)
  • Ribbon
  • Fairy lights
