Urban Fireflies

Urban fireflies

Having come from the Midwest, where fireflies are a summer treat, I greatly missed them when I moved to California. I wanted to capture the idea of having fireflies in a Mason jar, but without all the needless insect death.

The jar contains the circuit, lights, and a solar cell to recharge the batteries. A self contained unit that charges during the day and blinks at night.

    Hey Flint,
    I emailed you last night about the blog/article of how to make stuffed animal pants. Been checking out your site – it’s pretty cool. Would love to learn how to make one of your Urban Firefly jars too.

    You’ve got lots of great ideas.

    Really like ‘Saints & Sinners’ too.
