I dismantled a solar lamp and fixed it onto a jar, placed in crumpled tracing paper and added in marbles to make the glow softer and have a speckled feel to it. Lastly, tied a ribbon and now i have a sunjar !






It lights up once in the dark ! Perfect as a night light (which is what i'm using it as now).

It would've been cuter if i could stuff the panel in but these solar lamps my friend got for me has their circuit soldered onto the casing so it's pretty impossible to do so. I modified the jars i got instead to make it work for me. So the solar panel looks as if it's supposed to be a part of the 'supposed ginished product'. Although not as nice as i originally planned it to be, i still quite like my current sunjar ! Grin

The ones my friend bought for me are solar garden lamps. So you actually stick them into your patch of grass at home. They have a solar panel (to capture the light) and a recharagable battery (to store the energy) and sometime, a sensor to detect the change in lightings. It lights up automatically once it gets dark. (:

I'm not sure where you can find it really. I'm from Singapore (small little speck on the map) and i got my neighbour who was going to aussie to pick up some from me. I know that they sell them there in Target. Hope that helps ! (:
