Once the silicone dried, I pulled off the painters tape, and placed the mason jar upside down onto the candle holder. Having the jar upside down will also protect the solar light from the elements. I didn't glue the jars into place as I wanted the ability to go back in and replace the solar light tops if needed.

    1. Thank you so very much for the kind words Gail, you have made my day! Yes, I kind of am addicted to solar light creations… my kids say they need to wear sunglasses at night in now lol.

  3. Those are really cute! Do you take them in during inclement weather? I was just wondering if they’d blow over or it the jars would in windy weather. Living on a lake we almost always have quite a breeze.. Pinned.

    1. Thanks Joanne! I leave them out all year around, I made these last fall and they have been out ever since. I haven’t had them fall over at all, but I did add some rocks on top of the bases to help hold them steady.

  4. You already know that I love this!
