Clothespin Daisy Wreath –

I placed white plastic clothespins from Walmart onto a wreath form I got at Dollar Tree. I tied a Dollar Tree Mirror onto the center of the wreath form. Full Tutorial – Daisy Clothespin Wreath

Fireflies & Cattails –

I recycled a 1 gallon jug, placed a small strand of white lights and placed cattails into it. When it lights up at night it reminds me of fireflies that I grew up with in Minnesota. Full Tutorial – Fireflies and Cattails

Upcycled Pumpkin Candle Holder –

I found this pumpkin candle holder at a thrift store. I placed a recycled bottle in the center and filled that bottle with a short orange light strand from Dollar Tree. When it lights up at night you can see the warm pumpkin glow. Full Tutorial – Pumpkin Candle Holder Upcycles

Silverware flowers

I placed the silverware in a flower shape, and used metal wire to hold them into place on a skewer from Dollar Tree. I siliconed dollar store rocks onto the silverware. For the solar light – I bent silverware out and then used gaffers tape to hold the silverware into place with the solar light.

Dish Angel –

I used E6000 to glue thrift store dishes together to create this angel. I let it dry for 72 hours to make sure it had a secure hold. I placed a solar light in the center of the vase for added glow at night. Full Tutorial – Easy Light Up Dish Angel

Solar Chandelier

I pulled apart a chandelier and siliconed solar lights into the places where the lights used to be. I then siliconed mason jars over the top of the solar lights to protect them. Full Tutorial – Upcycle an Outdated Chandelier to a Solar Chandelier

Dishes Wind Chime –

I used a flower basket from Dollar Tree and turned it upside down. I used shower clips to attach a pot the the center and utensils around the outside. I put a solar light on top for added glow. I love the way it sounds in the breeze. Full Tutorial – Grandmaโ€™s Utensil Solar Windchime

Solar Lamp –

I found this tealight holder at the thrift store. I added a solar light to the center. I also found this beaded tealight shade and it fit perfectly onto the top of the solar light.

Pouring Teapot, Tea Cup, and Candle Holder Flowers –

I glued the lid onto the top of the teapot and glued a jewel into the spout. After it dried I placed it on a small shepard hook. I glued a tea cup onto a saucer, and then glued that onto a candle holder. I placed that under the spout. I found small glass candle holders and glued them onto skewers and place those in the flower pot. Full Tutorial – Pouring Tea Pot & Tea Cup Decor
