There are many great coaches for the solar altar, but when I decided to try to make one myself, I realized that changing the lighting design of the solar garden would make it easier to move from wooden stakes to cans.
No longer need to dismantle lights and battery boxes;
These small, compact design units can slide into your jar because they are right.
This means that making a solar tank requires only a little more paint and adhesives than you need to dry.
The most important part of making a fast and easy solar flask is to find the right sunlight.
Westinghouse's clean design was on sale most of the summer.
I found them in Orchard's hardware store for $2 each, but even at the regular price of $4, they are the most economical solar lamps.
You also need a jar with a glass lid.
The little garbage can bought from IKEA is only two dollars. 99.
If you can find a can in a junk store, you can pay a little more from the kitchen store and a little less.
Finally, you need glass frosted spray, adhesive.
I chose a transparent silicone adhesive.
A practical knife and some painter's or tape.
Several newspapers（not shown here)
Used in spraying process.
The grinding tank helps to disperse the light and make the whole tank shine beautifully, but I find it unnecessary time. -
Take the jar down and it frosts outside.
In less time, you can make a newspaper mask and spray it in a jar.
As an added bonus, you don't have to worry about scratching or peeling paint because it's moving.
A quarter of the newspaper is attached to the mouth of the jar to form a mark. Then a practical knife is used to cut the inside of the mouth.
Once your hole is cut, paste a newspaper with paint or tape. Put your jar away（or jars)
Draw in a cool place.
Several problems that should be paid attention to when spraying paint: spraying paint in wellsVentilation area.
It may also be a good idea to use masks and goggles.
Make sure and shake the tank thoroughly before use.
This will blend the paint to give you a more uniform coverage.
Keep the tank upright or slightly inclined at recommended distance from the tank.
Keep the tank moving slowly and continuously.
If you stop anywhere, you will get a bright coat of paint.
Ideally, you want a light, even coat.
If you need to add more paint later, you can--
But it is difficult to repair the dripping surface.
Frost spray is almost invisible, so it is confident that it covers and keeps a lightweight hand.
I used two light-colored coats to freeze the interior of these cans thoroughly.
These solar lights are just screwed off from plastic bulbs.
The whole solar cell is its own. -
Contains and can be used without further disassembly.
Make sure the plastic cover is removed from the solar cell, add silica gel adhesives if necessary, and then install the unit into the cover.
Note: It is better to test the compatibility before using the adhesive.
After putting the first unit in, I realized that this particular unit was very suitable for slom jar and did not need any adhesives.
It's a good coincidence that the future solar bottle will have a clean appearance without any adhesive showing through the top of the glass.
Apply a transparent silica gel adhesive around the edge to fix the solar cell.
You can flatten it with your fingers to make it look cleaner.
You've run out of pots!
Just remove the strip to prevent battery contact, close the jar and put it outside in a sunny place.
Most nights glow after charging.
My cost breakdown on this project is as follows: $3 IKEA SLIM JAR, $2 Westinghouse Solar Garden Lamp, $10 Kruron Glass Frost Spray, $4 GE Advanced Silicone Gel has knives, tapes and newspapers.
You can see that the cost of making a jar is close to $20, but if you make 15 jars at a time, it only costs $6 per jar.
There are at least 15 cans of spray and glue.
As mentioned earlier, these cans are good gifts. --
Especially in the sunny summer;
In winter, when it becomes a way to extend the finite sun.
I will be a Christmas/Hanukkah/Winter Solstice gift this year, depending on the recipient.
The only problem now is how to deal with the remaining solar energy.
Does anyone know about projects using wooden stakes, stainless steel tubes and plastic light bulbs?
