Some Details I Forgot

So I have gotten an enormous amount of emails from all the lovely bloggers out in the blogosphere who have had some questions about the Mod Podge Solar Lights -- and I wanted to post a little update to my instructions.  (You can also see the new information on my original post).

1.  What kind of jars did you use?

I used Ball Pint Sized Wide Mouth Canning Jars:


 I found mine at Menards for $7.00ish -- but if anyone lives by a Fleet Farm, I would try there too. 














2.  What kind of solar lights did you use?

This is kind of hard -- I bought these lights from Menards.  BUT - you don't have to do EXACTLY as I did -- you could use a bigger light and have it sitting on top of the jar -- just leave the plastic case thing on the light so it helps the light stay the jar:

















3.  Where do you get outdoor Mod Podge?  

If YOU find out - let me know!  It's something you may have to order online -- I couldn't find it in any stores.  I know Joanne's website has it, but their store didn't.  So -- check around online -- you can probably get it cheaper than in the store too.  Oh - and sadly there are no Hobby Lobby's around me -- but I'm sure they have it.

Feel free to comment or email with any other questions -- I'll do my best to answer -- but I'm no expert!!


If anyone makes these lights -- let me know -- I'd love to show them off on here!


And thanks to Nikki at Nikki's Nifty Knacks (say that three times fast!!) - she featured these lights today -- AND she's having a Gettin' Crafty on Hump Day party -- so go check out all the fun crafty things people are submitting!!

Did you just set the top of the light into the jar or did you secure it in some way? I've got these half done but got stuck on that.

Hi Tracie -

I kind of smushed my light tops in - they don't go all the way in, but they do fit pretty snugly in the top lip of the jar.

I had a thought that you could maybe use silicone and glue the light to the jar, but then if you wanted to change the battery on the solar light it'd have to be pried off.

Can't wait to see your lights!
