A couple years ago, I bought this candle holder at the thrift store.
I knew I would do something with it for an outside DIY project, but I did not know what.
I recently decided it was time.
I gave it a couple light coats of pretty spray paint.
I often use an old bucket turned upside down out in the grass to elevate the item I am painting.
Next I took a solar light from the store.
I removed the base and the clear plastic.
I covered the lightbulb with painter's tape.
And I cut a piece of painter's tape to fit on the solar panel on the top.
I gave the solar light a couple of light coats of spray paint as well.
I used some electrical tape to wrap the solar light so it would fit snugly into the candle holder.
Then I scuffed it gently with some sandpaper to give it the look of wear.
I was not crazy about it all black or all painted, but I do like the scuffed look.
Now I need to find where to put it....
Thanks for stopping by...
