Letting the kids vote I’m sure only added to their sense of involvement. These will make great keepsake pieces.

Think about it…when a mirror breaks…all those tiny pieces are still reflective.

I have taken some dried potpourri put in a mason jar added a string of lights (plug in kind but u can also use the battery kind) then sprayed it all with esstential oil scent.makes a great nite lite in the bathroom or to have on when guest comes over. folks always say how nice it smells. the heat from the lights will cause the oils to warm up and smell nice. we have left it on all nite and nothing has happened. the type of string used was the mini kind u get at dollar tree during the holidays but u can find them year round at crafting stores or on line. off to do more research and crafting . happy crafting y’all

Ground glass was all contained by the water, no problems, hole drilled in under two minutes.
It’s a Penderyn whisky bottle, with a ragged golden lightning bottle screened on the side already (we have a Welsh corgi named Penderyn). Going to look cool when we get the lights and some glass beads in there.

A blob of silicon around the power cord. Pop it in anywhere in the garden and it will be weather tight!

It is just like the one you use only it has 4 cutting blades on the end of it. It costs about $15.00 at any of the big box stores. We don’t have a True Value around here, but I would bet they would have one. Thanks for the instructions on Pinterest!! I enjoy looking at them.

I found some being thrown out and would love to make them new again they have a cloudy spooky look. Some are very large.

They are strung on very thin wires and attach to a battery pack at one end so you don’t need a big whole or an outlet :) http://www.lowes.com/pd_477215-57387-163431LOW_1z0wnwq+1z11964+2z8vj__?productId=50055737&Ns=p_product_qty_sales_dollar|1&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNs%3Dp_product_qty_sales_dollar%7C1%26page%3D1&facetInfo=LED|$5%20-%20$10

It is sooooo classy, yet easy to make. I did this several years ago with a glass bowl. After putting the lights into the bowl, I filed the bowl with potpourri. The potpourri covers the wire that the lights are attached to and when the lights get a little warm, it releases the aroma of the potpourri. Wonderful!!!!

Most labels just lift right off. Once the label is saturated and loose, just grab the corner and pull. Wash the jar and dry. No scraping required and no accidentally scratching the glass! =D
