Halloween Solar Lights

This spring I learned that the inexpensive solar lights from Walmart come apart and you can use the light in other containers.


I thought I would play with one and try some different Halloween ideas.  I have seen some cute pumpkin painted jars.  I didn’t make one, but I think the solar light would be a good alternative to using a candle if you wanted to leave them unattended.

Here are the ones I tried.

I put some rubber mice and some inside with some fuzzy trim on the edge of the jar.  It is not lit in this photo.


And now with the solar light working.



I also put a rubber mouse on my fish bowl.  My fish keeps checking out the tail. 


Funny huh?

The next idea I used scrapbook paper.  It is thick and transparent.  I found it at Michaels and cut it to fit inside the jar.



I also used some plastic spider rings.  I cut the ring part off and added some webbing that is used to decorate for Halloween so the spiders would show up better.  Pillow stuffing would probably work too.  I couldn’t get it to thin out and stay in place. 


What would you put in the jar?
