Glow in the Dark Goblin Jars [DIY]

Gather up:

one clear jar

Deco Art’s Glo-it paint

Americana’s Acrylic paint in Citron Green

twin string

2 plastic googly eyes (available at any craft store)

hot glue gun

paint brush


In a small bowl, mix together two tbsp. of Glo-it paint with one small dash of citron green paint (just to add a touch of color).  Paint the jar!

Once the jar has dried, about an hour, apply a tab of hot glue to the rim of the jar, then twist twine around it.  Secure the end of the twine with another dab of glue.

Finally, attach the eyes to the jar using two more dabs of hot glue.

There you have it, a Glow in the Dark Goblin Jar!
