I just love this jar! It will look cool even without the fireflies inside! You could also make it a bit easier by just dabbing in the paint randomly with a simple dab of a light brush stroke for the glow in the dark paint, rather than the stars if you want a more rustic option. You cold use this as a lantern by placing a pretty string or tiny LED lights inside when lightning bug season is over! This is a pretty jar idea! Clever!
