Moon-Shiners

The nights are drawing in fast, darkness falling around 7pm each evening.
I love to light candles on the porch, and sit and enjoy the cool night air.
My latest craft project has been the creation of these Mason Jar lights. You can purchase the lid-lights at most craft stores, or online, mine were left over from my granddaughter's wedding decorations.
 
The lids fit a regular Mason Jar opening, and charges the solar battery throughout the day.
The jars can be filled with glass beads or decorations, and when darkness falls they add charm and coziness to your outdoor space.
Hang them on fence posts or walkways if you need path-light ideas.

I am going to have to check these out. I have so many old jars that I have decided to box most of them for storage and keep out only the oldest and neatest ones for display.

This is so cool! I'm going to see if they have these at Bed Bath & Beyond! :-)

This is a great idea. I haven't seen these, but will look for them. I've seen folks put a string of lights in a jar, but then they have the plug and wires to content with. Thanks for sharing.
