Sunjar Guts
From the MAKE Flickr photo pool

I made this sun jar as a birthday present for my sister-in-law using a gutted solar landscape light, a glass jar from IKEA, and some glass frosting spray (following this example). I also upgraded the 600 mAh Ni-Cd battery that came with the light to a 2450 mAh NiMH battery.

Excellent gift idea (might use that one myself) – Homemade sun jar on Flickr
