Glowing Fairy Jar Nightlight

18 Aug

glowfairy2This adorable fairy in a jar nightlight is no power, super soft and totally portable. Since the fairy is there completely as a friend and is free to leave at any time there is no lid on this glowing bedside jar of magic. This project is surprisingly easy and fast to put together. The toughest part is the cutting the fairy details. For a full rundown on the easiest way to cut felt shapes check out this post: Felt Lab – 5 cutting methods tested or this one: How to cut small or detailed shapes from felt. 

You will need:

Glo Felt– Large Size*

3″ x 4″ scrap black felt*


Cord or string for handle around 11″ -12″ long

Fairy Nightlight template at the end of post

Beans, rice, peas or stuffing pellets to add a tiny bit of weight (optional)

*Matching thread


Cut glow felt on fold to form one long rectangle, and one top and one bottom from glow felt

Cut 1 fairy from black felt for more on this see Felt Lab- Difficult Shapes.

1Sew fairy to the center of the cut out jar, be sure to place her near the bottom so you have enough room to make the jar top ridges.

2Turn piece so fairy faces inward and overlapping the short end sides of the jar sew down with a running stitch. 3

  Sew bottom to bottom (where the fairy’s feet are) 4Turn inside out so the bottom looks rounded and fairy is now showing.

5Fold down top 1″ and around the top with a running stitch. 6Unfold and fold remaining area in half again. Sew down with a running stitch as you did above. 7Unfold and add stuffing. If you want to add stuffing beads  to insure it always stays upright if put a small amount in before adding the stuffing. It won’t take much. Stitch top to jar with an overcast stitch.

Knot each end of the cord and sew to opposite sides. with matching thread.
