I am in love with outdoor lighting! Often I find great candle holders that can be transformed into solar lighting. With a little creative alteration, you too could make these.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 2


  • wall sconces
  • spray paint
  • solar lights
  • glue gun
  • drill
  • screws


  1. Take your sconces and make sure they are free of dust, spray paint, and allow to dry.
  2. Remove the ground stake from your outdoor lighting. You will only be using the head of the light. Because the light was candle size, it fit perfectly in these sconces.
  3. With your glue gun, use a generous amount hot glue around the base of the solar light and also down inside the candle base.
  4. Place and secure pressing down. Repeat.
  5. Ad

  6. Mount in your garden.
