How to make solar lighted finials for privacy fence? Answered


A family member has these lighted finials on their privacy fence and I love the look they provide. But when I was putting up our fence last year, I found out that those little lights are expensive! When surfing around on this site, I found the instructable for sun jars (or solar jars) and thought that might be a practical alternative. Any ideas on how to convert one of those jars into a finial?

What do you do in winter ?
Try turning these over, screw the lid down, drill in two DC wires,
put a regulator / resistor some LEDs, turn the container into the lid.
Mount a solar array or run lo volt DC.
 
Your finials are done !

Why not hang actual sun jars on your fence?

Well why not fasten the insides off of the solar garden lights in your fixtures.
