Picture of Solar Night Light

I was inspired to do this project based off the "Home-made Sun Jar" from cre8tor. Though their version was very economic, I only had a dollar and a need to make a battery powered night light.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
  1. Solar garden light from Walmart I found for $0.97.
  2. A jar of some kind. I have some baby food jars that I washed out for just such an occasion.
  3. Glue gun (not pictured).
  4. (Optional) String

Step 2: Disassembly

Picture of Disassembly

Pull the pole off of the solar light.

*Keep an eye out for a "pull tab" to activate the solar light.

Step 3: Attachment

Picture of Attachment

Attach the light to the jar by any means that you may have.

I had a glue gun so I used it to attach the light to the jar.

Step 4: Attachment (part 2)

Picture of Attachment (part 2)

Check the "snug-ness" of the glue to the jar. It should dry fairly quickly.

At this point, you are officially complete with your nightlight; however, you may feel the urge to ornate your light with some string or ribbon. If so, please continue reading.

Step 5: Decorate
