Original Inspiration: http://www.polyvore.com/diy_fairies_in_jar/set?id=44763536

What I Did: I thought the picture from the site looked pretty cool and if it was possible to get mine to look like that, my kids would think I was a hero! Heck, I’d have a fairy making party! I did not change anything from the link.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I honestly am not sure if adding another liquid would have helped or a different kind of glitter– perhaps more glow? I threw in 3 glow stick juices per mason jar, so I am not sure how much more you should/could add

    it may not look exactly like the Pintrest photo, but at least your little sweetie looks happy with it. In his mind it probably looked more magical than our adult brains can imagine anymore 🙂

    The polyvore picture is photoshop. You will never be able to make anything that looks remotely close to that unless its photoshopping a picture. You didn’t do anything wrong, its the person that made that instructable and chose to use the picture they did as the “end result” picture, that was wrong to falsely advertise.

    They have some fancy camera on some fancy setting, and as the person above pointed out some photoshop – you’res looks great

    You have one child who can’t help but grin from ear to ear and another who wants nothing more than to get at those faeries! I say job well done. As stated above I call a photoshop fiasco as the culprit here, not you. And not even a good photoshop job as, to me, it looks very very fake and clearly photoshopped. I actually prefer yours to the Pinterest original.
