Rustoleum metallic spray paints in gold and copper

Some glue dots

Ikea LED nightlights

Jam jars

2.Rip the corrugated card into strips

Step 2

3.In a well ventilated, space, spray the strips copper colour and gold. Leave to dry













4. Place the cardboard strips round the jar, stick with a glue dot. You may want to place two different colour cuffs round the jar.

Step 4


If you want to use these as night lights in the garden make a thin wire loop round the jar neck and a hanging loop from that. Being LED’s they won’t blow out.
