From the blogger: "Every mason jar solar light project I've seen has had you cut the lid to attach the solar panel to the TOP of the jar. In this project instead I flip the jars over and glue the solar lights to the bottom of the inside of the jars! Now, with the jars flipped over, you don't have to worry about them filling with water and becoming buggy and gross. This is a simple project anyone can do! I actually ended up using pickle jars (as opposed to big mason jars) for this project because they were smaller and easier to get my hand in however any type of glass jar will work great for this!"

DIY Project Instructions
Take the stake off the bottom of the solar light so you're left with just the "head"
Add a dollop of glue on each side of the solar panel, do not cover the solar panel.
Tip the solar light over and set it inside the jar in the center of the bottom.
Allow to dry at least 24 hours.
Attach the pipe clamp to chosen location with a screw.
Flip the jar over so the bottom is facing up (so your little solar light can see the sun!) put the lid on and then tighten the pipe clamp around the jar.
