[Editors words]

Have you ever trembled in fear, huddling under your covers late at night, too scared to go to sleep? Have you ever cowered in the face of darkness, fearing the monster lurking in the shadows, just waiting for the perfect time to strike? Well fear no more! Illuminate every corner of your room with your very own homemade night light! Banish the shadows and vanquish the monster!

How to make night lights


  • empty wine bottle
  • double sided tape
  • 30 to 50 pebbles
  • yarn or string
  • any kind of fake leaves
  • hot glue gun
  • mini Christmas lights


First you take the double sided tape and wrap it around the top of the wine bottle. Then you wrap the yarn or string around the top of the wine bottle where the double sided tape is so that the yarn or string sticks to the double sided tape.

Next you glue the pebbles on to the wine bottle with the hot glue gun. After the glue dries glue the leaves on the wine bottle with hot glue. Finally you put the Christmas lights inside the wine bottle.

At first when I saw what we were going to make I thought it would be really hard to make but once I started making it, it was really fun and I loved it. Can you believe the little teacher Esther is only 9 years old?

Thanks to Little Masters Club for holding these events. It was a lot of fun!
