DIY Solar Light Project

Simple Solar Project


This is a super simple and inexpensive garden or walkway project. I used an empty wine bottle for the base to slide onto a square wood dowel (purchased at Lowe’s) and used waterproof adhesive to glue it onto a vintage china plate. The bottle was adhered after first assembling the plate to an old glass candlestick holder (which are both accented in gold). The solar light portion was easily removed from the stick that it came with and the light was glued for a snug fit into the top of the candlestick. The AA battery can still be replaced as needed since it is encased in the top “lid” part of the solar light.

I was amazed at the bright solar light that lit so nicely from this last night! The glass candlestick along with the solar light cast a nice design onto the dish, porch & sidewalk. I now have one on each side of my porch. Love these!!
