Whenever I find an old light globe at a yard sale or thrift store I usually buy it.
I used to stick a little tea light in them, wrap some wire around the top, hang
them from a shepherd's crook or hook, and
light them when we had a get together in our backyard.
Now, in this day of high tech magic, I took apart
a solar stake, ($3.99 at Home Depot), and glued
the solar top part on the globe with E6000. Wrapped some
wire around the top and hung them here and there.
You could also use Mason jars instead of the globe if you want to.
They collect the sunshine all day and then at night they cast a nice little light up along our
And glow like miniature moons in our trees.
Really, I like the flicker of candle light better than these solar lights.
But these are shining every night with no effort on my part and they're much
safer in our drying trees.
They make our backyard just a little bit magical on these
beautiful end-of-summer nights.
