Holiday Sun Jar

This is a detailed instructional post so you can make yourself a Holiday Sun Jar, which will bottle the sun and use it’s energy as a natural “green” nightlight.

A “Holiday Sun Jar” is just a Ball Mason glass jar painted with a holiday scene and the guts of a cheap solar powered walkway light affixed to the underside of the lid. The solar panel charges the battery during the day and at night the sun jar puts out a soft glowing light for about 8 hours.  This was a very fun family project and makes for a great gift for Christmas or any other occasion, just pick an appropriate scene.
