DIY Mason Jar Solar Lamp

IMG_1083.JPGOver Memorial Day Weekend my husband and I spent some time revamping our deck and if y’all know me well enough by now then you know that I don’t revamp a space without throwing in a little personal touch in the form of a little tender-loving DIY. This weekend’s DIY were some Mason Jar Solar Lamps.

The idea started with Creative Cain Cabin’s DIY Solar Lamps. I of course took the idea and put my own spin on it. The project didn’t cost very much, I got six outdoor lights out of the deal, and they add a beautiful light to our new outdoor oasis.

DSC_0196All I used were some short, wide mouth mason jars, twine, decorative rocks, the tops of some solar garden lights, scissors, and a crafter’s best friend, hot glue.
