1. DIY Sun Jar
We really love the Sun Jar. It's a great way to light your garden and it can easily create different moods thanks to their diffuse lighting. Buying Sun Jars can get expensive. They can cost from $20 to $45, which adds up quickly if you want to light up your yard. Luckily, this post will tell you how to build your own Sun Jar for about $6 each.

2. Sun Jar
This is the original Sun Jar. It's nice and tidy. Since the jars rely on solar power, there are no messy wires. If there were wires, the installation would be a lot more complicated. With Sun Jars, you just pop them down wherever you think it's best.

3. Nokero Solar Light Bulb
This is another great solution. You'll get rebates if you buy these in bulk quantities, so maybe you can order them for a bunch of your friends as well. They will last about 4 hours when they are fully charged up. These lights can be easily placed in any backyard since they are weatherproof.

4. Mathmos Aduki
It looks awesome and you can hang it from trees, enabling you to create a fairy-tale ambiance quite easily. There's only one problem: each Aduki light costs $70!

5. IKEA Solar Light Collection
While not technically intended for being used in gardens, except for the lanterns, a few of these lamps could be used for events in your backyard, when they're fully charged up. It's an interesting solution, especially the Solig Lanterns, which sell for $10 each.
