Bright ideas for outdoor lighting:    1. A string of colourful mini shades adds a playful element    2. String up twinkly solar or LED lights for a fairytale feel    3. Try wall lanterns for a soft glow and a vintage look    4. Chunky candles look pretty in glass vases or hurricane lanterns

Ann Elias: This is my light ‘up-cycle’ project from last year. I got this light for $5.00..painted it black…replaced the bulbs with solar lights…and then I was going to hang it from a shepherds hook..but then I noticed it would slide right into a piece of conduit…so I painted that black also. Inserted that into the ground. Instant light with no wiring! I plan on making more of these types of lights for the garden.

I have been looking for a good DIY way to hang string lights on the back deck. This is by far the best looking and cheapest I have found.
