I’m sure that everybody could use some of these around their homes. When I made these I made several because I had lots of places I could use them.
One of my favorite things to do is sit outside when it’s dark and the sky is full of stars. These mason jar solar lights are perfect for those nights when the sky isn’t lit up!
I found that the solar stake lights they are carrying at Dollar Tree for Spring are the perfect size for fitting in the canning ring of a pint mason jar. They look especially nice in the new throwback green and blue Ball Mason jars.
The “light” part pops off the stakes very easily and the top fits snugly into the canning ring. Anyone have a project idea for lots of leftover light stakes?I was pretty surprised to find how well the solar lights work for only $1. They charge in the daylight and then automatically turn on when it gets dark. I bought a bunch of them so I can have them for projects. Right now I have two in the kitchen and they work like night lights.
This is an easy DIY project that can be done in less than 30 minutes (depending on how many solar lights you will be making). Since we don’t have electricity on the porch yet, I decided to whip up some soft lighting for the evening hours and decided solar was the only way to go.
