    Solar lights are one of my favourite things! There is no reason why you cannot use ordinary jars. Here is a link to one of my boards which will should you plenty of inspiration and tips: http://www.hometalk.com/b/1003795/solar-lights

    Sure, you can. Mason jars are often used because of their look and because, as canning jars, they are strong.

    Yes you can. There is not an issue with heat since the solar lights are not strong enough to heat it up. Those would look just as lovely as anything else

    Why not ---- I use Classico spaghetti sauce jars -- they are beautiful when emptied and cleaned.

    I make solar lights from Walmart brand instant coffee jars, and bought their solar lights and they fit perfectly into the top of the jars. I put all sorts of goodies inside, i.e. acrylic stones, marbles etc of all different colors, they worked out wonderful and have had many ask where I got them lol.

    I made mine last year using mayonnaise and Mason jars. I put table salt half was up the jars (looks like snow) then inserted battery-powered candles in each. I placed ribbons around the jar necks and attached glittery deer ornaments that I purchased at local craft store on sale. The jars were placed on each step leading down to the street from our front door. The effect was really festive and pretty, and we got lots of compliments.
