Step 1: Home Depot
I went to Home Depot and bought a 4 pak of Landscape Solar Lights from Hampton Bay. It cost about $24.
Step 2: Buy Glassware
I then went to a thrift store and bought some interesting glassware. One is a mason jar and the other is a 1950's style glass coffee carafe complete with a gold starburst pattern. I removed the handle from the carafe.
Step 3: Frost It
Then you need to frost the inside of the glass. I had a can of spray on frost left over from a bathroom renovation. I gave both pieces two coats on the inside.
Step 4: Finish Up
Then I just added the light to the top. I took one apart to see what it was made of. I did hack this one apart to put onto another jar, but did not like the result. These use rechargeable batters, so just stick in the sunlight when they become dim. I think someone else did a similar project her.
