Gather all supplies. Wash and thoroughly dry the jars and metal lids, and then remove all labels. You can use any type or size jar as long as it is clear with a screw on lid.
Basecoat the metal lids with black acrylic craft paint. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Download and print the CORNISH PIXIE PATTERN SHEET on plain white paper. Select the size of Cornish Pixie that best fits each jar and cut them out carefully with scissors.
Coat the inside front of each jar with decoupage medium using a paintbrush. Apply the Cornish Pixie with the black ink side facing out and press into the decoupage medium with the paintbrush. Paint on an additional coat of decoupage medium, covering the back of the Cornish Pixie.
Open the package of tissue paper and tear it into pieces. Coat the outside of each jar with decoupage medium. Lay the pieces of tissue paper into the medium, and then apply a second coat of decoupage medium on the top of the tissue paper layer.
Place the coated jars upside down onto your work surface to dry overnight.
Screw the lids back onto the jars. Paint a bit of holographic glitter paint around the edges of Cornish Pixie images using a paintbrush and a dabbing motion.
Download and print the CORNISH PIXIE TAGS onto brown kraft cardstock. Select the tags that are the proper size for each jar. Carefully cut out with scissors and punch a hole at the top of each tag.
Wrap the natural jute twine around the neck of each jar. Thread the tag onto the twine and then tie in a knot. Trim the ends of the twine with scissors.
Remove the tea lights from their packaging and pull the tab out from the battery cavity. These tea lights are color changing, which the kiddos will LOVE! Turn the tea lights on, place in the jar, and screw on the lid.
Cornish Pixies are mischief makers. They are incredibly strong, love tricks, and practical jokes! These jars would make a perfect night light or a fabulous goodie bag gift for a Harry Potter inspired birthday party.
