  • Unscrew the solar light from the globe and stick.  Remove the cover from the batteries and remove the battery.
  • Pour the glass gems into the mason jar filling about halfway (about 2 cups of gems for a quart size wide mouth jar). Filling only halfway leaves room for the light to shine and the gems to reflect the light.
  • Center the mason jar lid ring on the bottom of the solar light making sure you do not cover the opening of the battery.    Glue the ring into place and let dry overnight
  • Replace battery and cover, and if needed file the corners of the cover or just leave the cover off.  Screw the solar light on the mason jar and place outside and enjoy your evening filled with the soft lighting.


 Don’t worry about replacing batteries since the sun recharges the battery every day and you will enjoy maintenance Free lights every night.
