Green Lights for Veterans!

There’s a movement to light up neighborhoods across the US with green in honor of veterans this November 11. We are humbled by the service of our military personnel, so we’re all about this endeavor!

Except for one small problem…it appears green lightbulbs are in short supply. So we found three easy ways to turn those green lights on at your house and in your neighborhoods…and what a great way to get your kids involved in an awesome project!

Mix up some Elmer’s Glue and green food coloring and you get a nice bright, but see through, green.

Mason Jars and glow in the dark paint, like this one from Rust-o-leum or this Krylon spray paint. Couple it with a battery operated tea light and the glow would be amazing!

Like the above projects, the goal is to line the jar to get its green color – this one uses tissue paper, Mod Podge and a battery operated candle.
