The materials used are minimal since most of this was 3D printed. However, some of the pieces are easier to use common items for. These are listed below: 2 Pins / needles / tiny nails Rubber band Balsa wood (any modelling wood will do) X-acto blade super-glue (I used JET modeling glue) Since the files that had printed were not 100% perfectly designed, I had to modify them a little bit with the balsa wood. This is what the extra modelling wood is for. The total cost for the above-mentioned materials is fairly cheap if you have the blade already.

It was about $4 for the glue, $2 for the wood, and I found the rubber bands and pins sitting around my house. The 3D printing was done through a friend of my family, so I cannot give an estimated cost using other vendors. Images of each of the CAD pieces is provided on this and other steps.

Create Your Own Solar Powered Mason Jar Nightlight from Junk. Bargain solar lights are either: - larger than the 2.25" opening of the Mason jar - smaller than the opening in the Mason Jar Larger: The first style I tried was (on clearance from 4th of July) just a touch larger than the opening. Easy enough to detach the blue top section from it's plastic post (not shown here). Next to make things fit I simply had to cut the sides of the light off using the dremmel and a tin snips.

This particular size light worked really well because no rewiring, cutting of the lid or even gluing of the lid was needed. I found these at Menards for $1 ...think I better go back for some more! Smaller - Here because the solar panel itself is so small it would slip through the jar "band". I cut the lid hole 2 different ways: - Marked a square on the lid and used the Dremmel to cut the opening. - I also used a hole-saw to create a round hole.

Another problem with the smaller size light: the battery inside was a 1/2 AA...looked like a AA only half the length. DIY Instructables - Share What You Make. Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshakes. Uhhh yes… why yes, I am posting a “recipe” for a milkshake. Feel free to kick me in the teeth.

I knew we were in this relationship for a reason. Ooooh and I also really enjoyed this (some would say too much) and didn’t want you to go a day without it. Okay… and the third (real) reason is that my last-minute planned cookies were a big fat fail on Tuesday and my teeth are sweet today. And I’ve already done all the other boring-yet-delicious, typical, ! This is my kind of thing.
