If you could use some solar path lights but you’re looking for something with more personality than your standard stake lights, here’s an idea from Amanda at Hand Me Down House.  She gave mason jars a colorful finish using dyed Mod Podge and inserted solar lights into the top to make these playful, cheery path lights.  You could also use empty jars from your recycling bin, which will probably have a smaller mouth and work well with the slim path lights from Dollar Tree!  [how to make mason jar solar path lights]

Project estimate:

  • Glass jars, on hand
  • Outdoor Mod Podge, on hand or about $6
  • Food coloring, on hand
  • Wire, on hand
  • Plant hooks, about $1 each
  • Solar path lights, $1 and up

Total:  $2 and up
