Heather over at Our Life in a Click did some great solar jars. Hers are very elegant frosted snap top jars, and I really have to have some. Now I know I have some of those in storage,
but what could I do for now?
She had the wonderfully simple idea of using these little solar light stakes, which are sold individually. Target had them on sale for $2 each!
Simply take the solar unit off the stake.
I happened to have several used candle jars laying around. You know the ones: filled with highly scented wax for around $5? I hate throwing them away afterwards though, and now I'm glad I didn't. I filled this one with shells and just popped the solar cell right on top! (Special thanks to my model with the purely cheesy smile.)
How's that for a 2 minute $2 craft?
And I do like the way they look on the patio. One down, 4 to go...
