Mason Jar Solar Light Sidewalk
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)
- 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.

I like your idea with the blue mason jars. I found some jars in lavender! My only concern is when the dogs run through and there goes the mason jar and probably the stand with it!! I would have to put this cute idea away from dog traffic and even the cats! lol

Thank you, and you might be able to find more heavy duty bases that would be more sturdy.
I'd love to invite you to join me ...

Melody, good idea! The mason jars could be placed on different types of bases too.

Another option is to spray paint the Mason jar ring the same color as the base then secure it upside down to the candle base with the silicone glue, a super glue, or a 2-step epoxy. When it is dry, continue with adding the solar lamp. when all is set and dry, you can screw the Mason jar into it's lid se curing it to the base but still able to unscrew to remove and replace the lamp.

D, upside down is a very good idea!
Wow, great idea, that is so created... Love it
Does the mason jar hinder the sun from charging the lights?
I love this idea !!...I wonder if you can find some plastic Mason Jars and use them or maybe put paint and mod podge in your clear glass mason jars and put them in the oven and make them the color you want.....sounds like a good ides to me on the different colors ...you could make a rainbow of colors and not just one certain color...
