Feeling Pinterested, Part 2, Day 3

I had 2 other ideas that I wanted to do for today.

But they are taking me longer to finish than I had thought. So I found a quick project to do for today, using what I had on hand.

I've seen this on my Pinterest page a LOT lately. It seems everyone is pinning this and it looks very cool.

Once again, no website to link to.
This seemed like a super easy trick.
I had a bunch of glow sticks on hand. Plus, I'm a crafter, so I have lots of glitter just waiting to be poured all over my floor and get caught in my eyelashes.
Here are my images from this:
I know. My jar has snowflakes on it.
It's all I could find.
It works.

This is me, making a hot mess.
I cut the ends of the glow sticks off in the kitchen and ended up getting glow goop everywhere.
My fingers, the kitchen counter, the garbage can lid and the floor, all have little glowing spots now.
And the weird sticks on the inside fell out too.
A toxic mess, I tell you...
Once you make a hot mess with glow sticks, you get to dump glitter on top of that.
We all know that glitter isn't messy...
Even my kids were saying, "Mommy! You need to clean up!"
It glowed.
A glittery, glowing, clumpy mess.
I'm just going to toss this jar, rather than actually open it to clean it.
I'm scared that if I open it, I'll get bombed with a glowing/glitter combo that will not wash off.

They were entertained for 5 minutes.
Not worth it.
It's cute, but messy.
That's not a win in my book.

  1. This looks like something my girls would like to fiddle around with in the summer time. On a rainy day, when they are "I'm so bored." I might have to come back to this post and try it out with them.


I LOVE comments...except bad ones. You can keep the bad ones. Or maybe disguise them as nice ones. I know people that are really good at that.
