Solar Mason Jar Lights Supplies:
Your solar light will come packaged as shown above. You will need to remove the pull tab for the light to work, and charge it for a few hours in the sun prior to use.
There are two winter versions of the solar mason jar lights that I am going to show you today. First up is one painted with a little glitter snow.
Use a foam pouncer brush and add glitter snow randomly to the jar. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
The second version just involves adding loose snow to the bottom of your jar. This is the non-permanent version that will be easy to change with the seasons. Because the light is in the top and does not get hot, adding items to the jar is fun and easy.
Now lets make the jar into a hanging lantern. Grab your floral wire and some pliers. First, start with adding a loop with your pliers.
Place the wire around your jar mouth and get the location for your second loop, which should be directly across from your first.
Place a second loop in your wire and then stretch it around the mouth of the jar. Use the pliers to secure, twisting very tightly.
Cut off any excess and bend the twisted wire down to avoid injury.
Use a second wire to create a handle by putting it through the loops and twisting to secure.
You are ready to light up the night with your new solar mason jar lights. Look at the way the light sparkles from these great mason jar lanterns.
What items will you add to the inside of your solar mason jar lights? Snow? Or something less seasonal? Just grab the lighted lids from Consumer Crafts and make your own version today.
