Mason jars can be used for everything. Holding your lunch, drinking tea, actual canning, or even giving off a bit of light. If you want that hipster look for your dining room table (or anywhere) pick up the Moon Shiner Solar Powered Lid, the lid that turns any mason jar into a light source.
So you have to supply your own jar which you can sort of claim makes this a “DIY” project for Pinterest, but that’s the only work you have to do. Will fit any jar with a mason style top. This lid is solar powered and switches on as soon as the lights switch off.
It’s water resistant and safe for indoor or outdoor use. The great thing about this is if the jar breaks, you can just screw the lid on another one and you’re back in business. Just remember to stick it in the sun before the evening you want to use it. Finally a use for all those jars you collected when you were going to start canning but never quite got around to it. The Moon Shiner Solar Powered Lid is $10.99.
