For the first option you'll need: Mason jars and the lids - one per address number Solar lights (Dollar Tree) - one per jar Sharpie or paint marker

Using a stencil or free hand, draw you numbers onto each mason jar.

If you’d rather use vinyl sticker numbers that would work as well. Pull the solar light stem off the light.

Place the light into the mason jar ring lid.

Place the solar light on top. I would recommend using silicone or a glue of your choice to adhere the lights into place. Optional - add some dollar store rocks for weight or some water to enhance the brightness.

  3. I love the glass block idea. I can’t find a glass block with a hole in it at either Lowes or Home Depot. I guess I need to go to a tile shop. Thanks for sharing at What’d You Do This Weekend. You will be a feature on Monday.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
    Linda

    1. Thank you so much Linda and thanks for the feature. If it helps – they sell the kraft blocks with holes in them at Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

    1. Thank you so much Gail, wonderful hopping with you πŸ™‚

  6. All great ideas, I love the first one best. Not sure I’d do it for our house though — we have 6 digits in our house number! I didn’t know those glass blocks had a hole in the bottom. That gives me some ideas for holiday crafting! xo Kathleen

  8. Thank your for the inspiration. This weekend our neighbor accidently got a box that was for us. So I discussed with the hubby about putting numbers on the mailbox. I am adding some solar lights too since I found your post with these great ideas.
    Have a great week,
    Kippi

    1. Thank you so much Beth, I’m thrilled you like it and what day is your party? Thanks for the invite.

  10. Hey, Chas! This is such a great idea. In this pandemic life, we have been ordering food delivery more than ever. We have a weird outside front porch light that only comes on with a motion sensor. I always feel bad for night time delivery people who are driving down the street probably cursing me out for not having the address lit up. This is a perfect solution! Thanks.

    1. Thank you so much Kimberly, I’m thrilled you like it. I totally know what you mean… our address numbers were put on a pole and a non light space… how will anyone see that?

  11. Very clever, Chas. Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ’s.

    1. Thank you so much Ann, and thanks for stopping by

    1. Thank you Meg, love using things we already have and putting them to great use.

    1. Thank you so much Ann – they have been really useful.
