An Apple Box, Rusted Out Mattress Springs & Solar Lights = Cuteness!!!
This was a super simple project that turned out so cute! It adds a nice soft glow to our patio space in the evening.
I've had this apple crate around for quite awhile just waiting to get used in some way.
My son and I found this piece on the side of the road. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it when I found it but I knew it held potential!
I purchased some solar lights from Walmart for only 88 cents each & removed the stakes for putting them into soil.
I used the apple crate as the base, topped it with the mattress spring and added the solar lights.
I found these tiny terra cotta pots at the local dollar store and they were either 3/$1 or 4/$1, either way they were cheap! I added the potting soil and some small flowers.
