Step 1. We take a sheet of foil and draw on it a diagram of the starry sky. If you want an exact copy, you will have to work hard. You can do this schematically, from memory.
Step 2. We put a sheet with a drawn diagram on a solid surface and with the help of an awl we make holes. These will be our stars.
Step 3. Cut off all the excess from the foil. The height of the sheet should be equal to the height of the can. Carefully fold the sheet with a tube and insert it into the prepared jar.
Step 4. At the bottom of the can, lay the flashlight and turn it on.
It remains only to wait for the night and enjoy the picture of the starry sky.

Step 2. Glue the butterflies on the resulting tube in random order, leaving 2 pieces for the next step.
Step 3. We take the wire, wrap the jar with it 1 time, and then bend so that we get a semicircle above the jar itself. We attach the remaining 2 butterflies to the resulting bend with a thread.
Step 4. Inside our tube with pasted butterflies we place a jar.
Step 5. We put a lit candle in the jar and enjoy the magnificent picture.
Nightlight for a child
Making a children's night light with your own hands is also quite simple, the main thing is to show your imagination. For those who want to please their baby, the next option is homemade.

Step 1. Take a tulle and cut into many circles.
Step 2. Take the lampshade, it should be clean and dry. Next, take one circle of tulle and fold it in the shape of a rose (take the middle, lifting the edges up - your rose is ready). Using glue, we fix the tulle on the ceiling, gluing it only in the middle. Thus, you get a fluffy ball.
We hide the garland or flashlight inside the lampshade, and show the child beautiful magic. The kid will be delighted and happy to fall asleep in the light of such a nightlight.
Having made a night lamp with your own hands (photos of master classes describe the whole process in sufficient detail), you will transform not only a children's room, but also a bedroom.
A fun night light in 5 minutes

How to make a nightlight using only improvised tools described above. To make a fun craft, you will need not only a glass jar, but also a fluorescent paint that glows in the dark. The more colors you use, the more fun it will turn out, but with imagination you can do with a minimum.
So, take the can, brush and paint. We draw everything that comes to mind on the inside of the jar. During the day, the paint will accumulate light, and in the dark you can see what you painted on the bank. This view will always please you, giving only positive emotions.
