    DIY Sun Jar: "a fellow fp girl sent this to me a couple weeks back and i’ve been thinking about it ever since! i can think of a million reasons why these would be awesome… as apartment décor, as outdoor party décor, and – wouldn’t they be the best thing EVER for camping in general or at a festival? just let them sit in the sun all day, and they’ll last all night!

      Solar light jars. Good for night lights for the kids or for a power outage 'cause I'm the kind of woman who can never find a working flash light when I need one.

      Night Light Jar Paint the inside of the jar (NOT the Lid) with a 'Frosted' paint...white or clear. Next you will need a solar yard light. Remove the solar lamp from the light and glue it into the lid.

      Use solar powered garden lights to turn mason jars into night lights. Come in handy when you want to have "mood" lighting outdoors with a toddler. :)

      Sun Jar DIY - mason jar with a clear glass lid, a solar garden light, adhesive & glass frosting spray. First spray the inside of the jar with the frosting spray to diffuse the light and give it a warm glow. Don't spray the lid! It needs to be clear in order to work. Next take apart the solar lamp. Glue the solar cell, or the parts you’ve harvested from the garden lamp, to the underside of the jar’s lid. Close the lid, put your jar in direct sunlight, and it’ll glow all night long!

    The Solar Power Generator. This is the generator that is powered by the sun and provides emergency electricity for any home appliance. Unlike noisy gas or propane generators that produce noxious fumes, this advanced model is silent and provides zeroemission back up power without relying on volatile fuels. When fully charged, the 1250-watt battery powers a refrigerator for up to four days, a television for 35 hours, or a laptop for up to 30 hours. Up to eight solar panels, two included. Hammacher
