I've made a few of these recently. All I did was to buy a garden light from the £1 shop, get a plastic kilner jar for about £1-£2 from a corner shop, sand the inside of the plastic jar until it became cloudy and bobs your uncle!

B&Q have a load of garden lights in their sale for cheap right now, so you should check out there.

You can also do it with a glass jar and spray the inside of the jar with glass frosting spray. It looks alot better, but it's around £5 for a can of spray. You can do about 8-12 jars with each can, perhaps more.


I also desoldered the rubbishy blue/white leds in the garden light and put my own orange and UV lights into them. The UV lights are lower power than white LEDs and last much longer and you can also coat the inside of the jar with UV-reactive paint, to achieve a huge variety of colours.

Possibilities are endless! Do post up any results for us to see!
