DIY Solar Lamp


How about making a DIY solar lamp.
Here is an Eco-Friendly Sun Jar.  This looks like something I might like to try.

Ha! With a hurricane and almost certainly tornadoes, also, I should have made this earlier. My solar yard lights that I bought during the electrical outage last year can be used if I need them.

Have you ever made one of these? I just purchased the solar garden lights after the tornado cut off our electricity. At night, I brought them in at night. They were a great comfort to me.

Your turn
Do you ever use solar garden/yard lights for lighting when the lights go out?


  1. Yes. Yes I do.
    I use them as night lights when the granddaughter stays here too. I am going camping tomorrow and I have put a couple in the van. I will cover them when I want it dark but if I wake and need light I will pull the cover off so I can see. I like the look of them in the jr so may try that.


  2. That looks so cool! It would be a very nice decorative touch if you have a get together.

  3. Great idea, especially during storms when you don't want a candle or oil lamp burning. I'll have to try this. Thanks for the tip!

    1. Katidids,
      When you do, I will post a picture of it.

  4. Excellent blog..this will increase as people begin to understand the benefits offered by solar energy.... solar panels
