How to Create Light Up Cornish Pixie Jars:
To begin the Harry Potter Crafts DIY Cornish Pixie Jars, gather all supplies. Wash and thoroughly dry the jars and metal lids, and then remove all labels. You can use any type or size jar as long as it is clear with a screw-on lid. Basecoat the metal lids with Lamp Black Americana acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Download and print the CORNISH PIXIE PATTERN SHEET at the bottom of the post ⇓ on plain white paper. Select the size of Cornish Pixie that best fits each jar and cut them out carefully with scissors. Coat the inside front of each jar with Decou-Page Medium (I prefer the matte finish) using a paintbrush. Apply the Cornish Pixie with the black ink side facing out and press into the Decou-Page Medium with the paintbrush. Paint on an additional coat of Decou-Page Medium, covering the back of the Cornish Pixie. Set aside to dry. The medium will turn clear once dry.
Open the package of tissue paper and tear one sheet into pieces. Coat the outside of each jar with Decou-Page Medium. Lay the pieces of tissue paper into the medium, and then apply a second coat of Decou-Page Medium on top of the tissue paper layer. Place the coated jars upside down onto your work surface to dry overnight.
Screw the lids back onto the jars. Paint a bit of Galaxy Glitter Clear Ice Comet paint around the edges of Cornish Pixie images using a paintbrush and a dabbing motion. Set aside to allow the glitter paint to dry.
Download the CORNISH PIXIE TAGS at the bottom of the post ⇓ onto brown kraft cardstock. Select the tags that are the proper size for each jar. Carefully cut out with scissors and punch a hole at the top of each tag. Wrap the natural jute twine around the neck of each jar. Thread the tag onto the twine and then tie in a knot. Trim the ends of the twine with scissors.
Remove the tea lights from their packaging and pull the tab out from the battery cavity. These tea lights are color-changing, which the kiddos will LOVE! Turn the tea lights on, place them in the jar, and screw on the lid.
