How to make a Starry Night Light

 Starry Night!

1 large bottle
1 string of twinkle lights
Blue paint
Black spray paint
Black Sharpie Pens
1 small iron plant holder
Paint the outside of the jar.

Spray paint the top of the bottle with two or three coats of black paint. 

Place bottle into the planter holder. Using a black Sharpie pen draw in trees all the way around the bottle.

Check your lights to make sure they are working.  I had to, the set I used were out of my old Christmas box storage.

Put the lights into the bottle, leaving the plug and enough length of the electrical cord to plug into outlet.

Put the plug through the bottom of your bottle holder. Then place the bottle in and check it out. The more light in the room, the brighter the bottle color. 

Less room light makes the blue paint more transparent.
