Have you ever wondered what to do with solar lights or how to decorate with them? I am going to show you 3 ways to use solar lights outside.
Teaming up with Tarah (Grandma’s House DIY), Kristin (White Arrows Home), Andrea (Design Morsels), Mary (Life at Bella Terra), Kipp (Kippi at Home), in our DIY Blog Hop this month with projects for our backyard! (Make sure and check out all of the deck projects following this tutorial)
I found this little tealight holder at a thrift store for $2.
I grabbed 3 Dollar Tree solar lights, and pulled the bases off of all of them. I used my Plaid Wood Burning Tool, added the knife top, heated it up, and then I used it to cut the little plastic knob off 3 solar lights.
I placed silicone and a solar light into each tealight holder.
I let it dry for 24 hours and now it sits on a table on my front porch. This is just one way to use solar lights outside.
My friend gave me this candle holder stand. I washed it, scraped off a lot of the peeling paint and rust. I then painted it with Rustoleum black paint and let it dry completely.
I placed the lids onto the jars.
I placed it in my yard and here is another example of how to use solar lights outside.
For my last project, I used an old lamp. I cut the wire off, and removed all of the parts I didn’t need.
I added silicone to the top of the lamp where the light bulb screwed in.
I pulled the stem off a solar light I found at Walmart and placed it into the silicone.
I let it dry completely and then placed it in my yard.
