So I've been wanting to make these forever (meaning a few months) and while cleaning the garage I found the perfect jars for it! I used this (http://blog.freepeople.com/2011/03/wednes-diy-63/) as inspiration, but added some little twists. I didn't paint the inside like the tutorial suggests because the solar lights I used were really weak and I didn't want to diffuse the light too much. However, I did feel like it needed something to even out the glow throughout the jar so I added a bunch of marbles and glass bits at the bottom. Plus it added some color, which I am always fond of. I also added the little bee because... well... cute doesn't need a reason! XD Well, also, the jar reminded me of a beehive. So there you have it!

Those are so lovely and such a clever idea.  I like your idea of glass and marbles better than the original of painting the inside. Now I need to find a solar lamp to take apart.

They turned out lovely! I really like how the colored glass reflects color onto the ground!

That's awesome!  I really like your take on it, with the marbles.  What sort of solar light did you start off with?
