I made these marbled solar mason jar lights in just a few minutes using all Dollar Tree supplies!
These beautiful jar lights are easy to make and a great craft for teens and adults. Just pick up small mason jars, nail polish, and some solar stake lights from Dollar Tree.
You can use any glass jar for this DIY if you can’t find mason jars, just make sure the mouth of your jar is wide enough to place a solar light inside.
I also picked up three different colors of nail polish. I’m making these for my porch for the 4th of July so I’m using red, white, and blue nail polish. Use any colors that match your decor. Glitter nail polishes are also pretty if you like a more sparkly look!
This DIY is super simple but I put together a video so you can see how mine came together and a simple list of supplies below.

How to Make Marbled Solar Mason Jar Lights
Start by cleaning your glass jar and removing any stickers or labels. Next, fill a container or bucket with about 3-4 inches of water and set up a piece of waxed or parchment paper nearby to place your jars on to dry.
Drizzle and swirl nail polish into the container of water. There’s really no technique here, just have fun with it!

Hold the jar at the top and dip it into the water. Turn the jar and dip each side into the nail polish.
Add a wire with beads for a handle (optional). See the video above to get a better look at the process.
Drop a solar stake light or a battery-powered tea light into the jar and enjoy!
