GREAT picnic table lights

Ever seen "redneck wine glasses"?

It's a Mason jar glued to a glass (cheap) candlestick.

Well I found, on eBay, Mason jar lids with a solar light embedded in them.

I figured out how they did it and made some of my own.

The solar light reflects off all the embossing on the jars and looks like thousands of diamond patterns on the top of the table.

NEAT!

I made three of them...two shorter candlesticks and one taller one.

Also made my own awning lights (not the led strips..the kind you clip to the edge of the awning).

Ordered recycled shotgun shells in four colors; red, blue, green and yellow.

They come re crimped so I took a 60 bulb LED strand of Christmas lights and pushed each bulb down into the corresponding colored shell. The crimp holds the bulb in place, no falling out.

VOILA!

Oh, I also made some without the candlestick. Just a grouping of three different sized Mason jars with solar lights in the lid.

Those could be used as night lights in the kids' bunkhouse, a neat bug jar, etc. (when I make them there's slight air spaces between the hot melt glue in the lid so bugs would live).

Sounds great, but I want to see great. LOL




I promise not to come over to your house and steal them.

On a side note, there are several of us going camping at Jimmie Davis next weekend, if ya want to stop by and/or join us.

Sheesh! ...ok, ok, ok....I'll go set 'em up for some pics. Gonna be tough getting a picture of them lit up, as it has to be in the dark.

I'll take a picture of the components, and the finished product.

BRB!

(off work today....yeeeeehaw!)
