I have a growing collection of baby food jars - there is something about their tiny proportions that appeals to me. They are perfect for storing buttons, shells, acorn caps and other tiny treasures. We used them to make these lanterns which sit on our windowsill catching the autumn sunlight. In the evening they glow beautifully with a nightlight inside. To make them we cut heart shapes from kite paper using a craft punch (I'm planning some snowflake ones for Christmas) and then used pva glue to stick on the shapes and coat the finished jars to give them a smooth finish. I made the handles using wire threaded with buttons. If you're worried about young children carrying nightlights you can buy LED nightlights or just sit them on your windowsill in the sunlight.
