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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
- Solar garden light from Walmart I found for $0.97.
- A jar of some kind. I have some baby food jars that I washed out for just such an occasion.
- Glue gun (not pictured).
- (Optional) String
Step 2: 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
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)
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
Attach some string or ribbon of your choice using hot glue (and patience... and calluses).
