Kids love magical things and even some of us adults seem to have never outgrown our fascination with them. Well, what’s not to love about those cute dwarves, unicorns and fairies?

This crafty DIY project is very easy; big kids can even make one for themselves. Just remember not to use real candles!

A mason jar fairy lantern would look good inside the bedroom as night light. Making a set is also great as living room decor or an outdoor decor during the Halloween. If you’ve got a fairy garden in your yard this makes a perfect addition!
