Lighted gazing ball mounted in an old log / Instructions included!

33,877 Views
This is a standard glass gazing ball that can be purchased at many home centers that we mounted on an old log and installed colored lights inside the glass ball. We drilled a hole up through the center of the log and fished an extension cord from the bottom to the top and into the glass ball after inserting colored LED lights. Then we mounted the log on a concrete base and secured it in place. I broke my original beloved gazing ball this morning trying to get pics so that is the reason for the change on the color of the glass ball.

    Oh Julee! I'm so sorry you broke the original bulb. If only folks would have read your comments on the last thread you'd have not been out there trying to take pictures. I'm so so sorry! (I commented on the photos on the other thread, but read where some were cranky about knowing how to do this. READ people!

    You are so Awesome. I am sorry about the 1 Gazing Ball Breaking. :(. I agree with Becky. If people had read the thread you mentioned how you did it. PEOPLE need to be more understanding that you were kind enough to Share this Awesome Idea. Blessings.
