I got solar stake lights from the Dollar Tree and Parmesan cheese shakers. I took the light tops off the stakes and took the metal shaker tops off the jars. Then I put the lights in the jars. Soon I will place them on my front deck! Pics of that when it isn't raining! Cost me $16 for 8 lights and 8 shaker jars. I kept the shaker tops and light stakes in case I decide to dismantle them at some point. You can also use mason jars or vases from dollar stores or anywhere! More pics in comments!
ETA: thanks to Chandra314's idea I am going to place clear fish bowl pebbles underneath the lights to lift them a little!
