Great ideas for garden lighting

26K Views
The days are getting noticeably shorter, but nights can still be warm, making this an ideal time of year to focus on lighting for outdoor spaces. Some garden lighting can be quite pricey, but the Garden Therapy blog has a great collection of mostly do-it-yourself ideas. Check them out at http://gardentherapy.ca/outdoor-lighting-ideas/

Got a question about this project?

    Cool roundup, Douglas! I'm always really drawn to DIY lighting projects - I think I'm just addicted to the feeling of stargazing/being surrounded by twinkling Christmas lights.

    Thanks Douglas (do you go by Douglas or Doug? Just curious). We made the wine bottle deck lamps and love them, but want to add a shield between the flame and where it is attached to the deck rail because it singes and leaves black soot on the

    Julee, I generally go by Doug, but there are some people who have always called me Douglas, so I go by that, too. We'd love to see a photo of your wine bottle deck lamps.

    @Zelma Daley : You would need to look on Garden Therapy's site. That's where the instructions are.

    I made the tin can ones years ago for friends as Christmas gifts . I used a drill instead of a hammer and nail. I wish I had known about using the sand with the water. The designs and colors I used were personalized to each individual; blue and gold
