We show you how to make a fairy jar, a great craft activity, and a keepsake. You can change the theme to suit your taste, and they make lovely gifts.

With thanks to Jude, from Accrington, who sent in this great fairy jar idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

We made a Fairy Jar! It is very simple to make, you just: PVA glue tissue paper to jar, let it dry then decorate, I chose fairies and bells.

It is very relaxing and it calmed my kids down.
