Mason Jar Lights

I have a small collection of Mason jars, clear and turquoise, and use them for vases and button holders. This summer I am going to be turning some of them into outdoor lights.
The easy way to do it is to just fill it with some sand or pebbles (or not) and put a tea light candle in it, but you can also use solar lights , a battery powered LED light or stuff little party/christmas lights in them.
To hang, attach wire by either wrapping it around the mouth or drilling holes on either end of the mouth.
