If you love space and crafts, you’re going to love creating your own nebula in a bottle! It is super fast, super easy and uses items you probably have at home already. Follow these simple steps…


What you’ll need:

1. A transparent jar or bottle with a good lid
2. Cotton balls
3. Glitter
4. Water
5. Food coloring or fabric dye
6. A pencil or straw

Step 1

MAKE SURE YOUR JAR IS CLEANED OUT THE FILL THE JAR WITH WATER UP TO 1/3.

Step 2

ADD FOOD COLORING OF YOUR CHOICE AND THEN MIX THOROUGHLY WITH A STRAW OR PENCIL.
ADD ENOUGH COTTON TO YOUR JAR SO THAT IT’S COMPLETELY SOAKED IN THE DYED WATER. USE YOUR STRAW OR PENCIL TO PRESS IT DOWN UNTIL IT’S FULLY SUBMERGED. THEN ADD GLITTER TO THE MIX AND SHAKE IT UP.

Step 3

IN THIS STEP, YOU’RE GOING TO CREATE A SECOND LAYER BY ADDING MORE COTTON ON TOP OF THE FIRST LAYER. THEN MAKE A MIX OF WATER AND A DIFFERENT COLOR OF DYE IN A SEPARATE CONTAINER AND POUR THAT SOLUTION OVER THE SECOND LAYER OF COTTON. THEN ADD MORE GLITTER AND SPREAD IT AROUND WITH A STRAW.
