Inexpensive and easy way to make DIY outdoor lighting by re-purposing a tuna can. A dowel, paint or old broom stick, wood screw, copper fitting, and a thrift store glass hurricane is all that is needed. Simply drill a hole in the can and dowel to attach the dowel/paintstick and spray paint it. Once the paint is dry add the glass hurricane. Cost- $5.00

My mother made many of these when I was growing up! Hadn't thought about those in a long time!
I used clear contact paper to frost the sidelights beside our front door. The trick is to spray the window and the back of the contact paper with water before positioning onto the window. This helps to be able to slide and adjust it into place. Go to Plum Doodles for additional info and tips.: http://plumdoodles.com/2012/05/23/add-priva...
