This is step by step instructable that will take you through the whole process of making these solar mason jars with a bead "Chandelier" inside. They look great during the day but really shine at night.  You're garden Faries will love them!

This is a totally original idea so if you borrow this for your site I don't mind, just make sure you credit me as the source.  Thanks!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You will  need the following items to make your Garden Fairy Chandeliers.
1 Solar Power garden stake (Twist off the top portion, that is all you will need)
Gorilla Super Glue
1 Wide Mouth 3 cup Ball canning jar
Assorted Beads
Crimping Beads
Needle Nose Pliers
Crimping Pliers (jewerly supply)
Fishing Line 10 pound test
scissors
Hot glue gun/glue
Heavy duty wire (to make hanger for the jar)

Step 2: Make the Solar Top

Take the Solar top from your garden stake and glue the metal ring portion from the top of the mason jar to it.  You will not use the center pressure lid, or the bottom portion of the solar lamp.  Save these parts for another project.

Place the solar top upside down, run a bead of glue around the outer edge and lay the metal twist lid (open in the center) onto the solar light.  It should fit perfectly, hence why I used the wide mouth jar.  

Try fitting them together in a dry run first just to get the hang of it.

Once it is glued place a heavy object on top to hold in place until it is dry ...usually a few hours.
