I had some mason jars on hand that I had picked up garage sale-ing last week (because really, you can't have too many mason jars!) and some $1 solar lights from a project that bombed out!

I masked the solar panel and spray painted both the light and the lids in Oil Rubbed Bronze - you could do any color you like at this point to add some vibrance to them! I drilled a hole through the lid to allow for the light to hand down in. I added a bead of glue to the bottom of the solar light and fit it on the lid and let it dry.

    Place dollar store clear glass stones almost to the top of your jar. Looks very pretty.

    I made some of these with my granddaughter.....instead of drilling, I used plastic lids, like a sour cream lid. Used the jar lid as a stencil and then cut an X on middle of plastic lid. Shoved the solar light through the X. Followed the remainder of

    I made four little jam jar lights and use them for camping. They look so pretty sitting on the tables around the fire.
