Begin by emptying your water bottle. You can use just about any water bottle but we prefer using these because they are thick and sturdy and look great! You’ll also want to remove the label from the bottle.

Now, mix 1 part glycerin to 3 parts hot water in your measuring cup. You can use more or less glycerin depending on how slowly or quickly you want your stars and glitter to fall. Mix well and pour into jar. You could also add in a few drops of liquid watercolors (blue or purple look especially neat with this starry night theme) if you’d like.
