The Solar Nightlight for Camping

Just before our camping trip, I made this solar-lit jar that I had seen on Pinterest.

Mine turned out a little different, since the solar light sat lower on the jar lid, but I think I like it better that way.

Blaze likes to have a nightlight and this worked perfect as a tent nightlight. The light was shining from the moment the sun went down, until just before dawn.

The solar garden light I used had been a red, white, and blue one that I bought for a $1 last year after the 4th of July. I used a little Rub 'n Buff on it to tone down the colors. The canning jar was also about $1, so this was a very inexpensive project.
