sun jar, sun, solar, mason jar, outdoorSun jars are a lifesaver for outdoor living, but they are sooo pricey. Luckily, the fine folks at Apartment Therapy Unpluggd are getting their hands dirty with this affordable DIY version:

Here's what you'll need:
(1) mason jar with transparent lid
(1) solar garden light
(1) AA rechargable battery
(1) package of blu-tack, or a similar reusable adhesive
(1) can of glass frosting spray

The best part? This is the easiest DIY you'll find. Simply take apart your solar garden light, mount the contents with blu-tack to the underside of the lid. Frost the outside of your mason jar with glass frosting spray to diffuse the light, and... DONE!
Total project cost? Less than $36 for six sun jars. Much better than the $45 version here! Go, DIY!
