Mason Jar Solar Light Sidewalk

5 Materials
30 Minutes

I bought some candle holders from a thrift store, blue mason jars from a garage sale, and put them together with some solar lights to create a beautiful light up sidewalk for my home. You can see more of my crazy creations here


  • Candle holders (thrift store)
  • Blue mason jars (garage sale
  • Solar Lights (dollar store)
  • Silicone
  • Painters Tape

I pulled the base off the solar lights as well as the orange take to turn them on.

I used silicone to adhere the solar light to the candle holder.

I used painters tape to hold the solar lights into place until the silicone dried.

Once the silicone dried, I pulled off the painters tape, and placed the mason jar upside down onto the candle holder.

Having the jar upside down will also protect the solar light from the elements.

I didn't glue the jars into place as I wanted the ability to go back in and replace the solar light tops if needed.

I placed them along the sidewalk that goes to our front door.

Here's what they look like at night.
