Solar Powered Front Porch Lamp ... {Oh and a Planter, Too!}

I am late getting my front porch decorated for Summer. But, this Solar Powered Porch Lamp (which happens to double as a planter) is getting the mood set for a Country Farmhouse-Style Porch.
Time: 1 Hours Difficulty: Easy

Is it a lamp? Is it a planter? Is it a house number sign? Yes, yes, and yes. :)

I started out with one of these. You see them all the time at big box stores and even Dollar General. I did splurge and get a high-powered one. (or so it said) :)

    Seems like the lampshade would not take the outside elements well. Couldn't you use a small white plastic bucket with a small cut so the solar light could get sun?

    Lthswatchr, Thank you for your kind words. I do have many very precious memories and for that I am very thankful. I am also very thankful that I have a future hope of a promise of eternal life that we will be able to share when time here is ended

    Would never have thought to make a lamp out of a solar light. Such a cute idea.

    Thanks for the inspiration! I've made several of these and they are lovely. By the way, the shade holds up fine to the weather!
