When you’re choosing your the jar for your fairy light, you can use either a pint mason jar or a quart mason jar. We chose pint jars for the ease of showing you in photos. Once you’ve got your jars, add a puff of green moss to the bottom of the jar.
On top of the moss, add a stack of birch discs. Top the birch with more moss or flowers. Continue to do this to the top of your jar making sure to alternate what you’re adding for a good variety.
Once the jar is full, attach the wire mason jar handles to your fairy light. They should simply sit over the mouth of your jar.
