These next pictures are some of my favorite. I added a multi colored solar light inside it... you could use a simple plain white one as well.

    What did you use to get the colored lights in the last few photos?

    Trying this for our Veterans home nearby. Thanks, Would the mod podge work for adhesive on glass gems on to smooth pine wood? It is a lighted cactus with every other hole covered by a opaque gem. Hot glue & gorilla has not worked so far. Outdoor project. Any ideas?

      Thanks Sheila, I'm so excited you want to give this a try. As far as your project since it is outside - Mod Podge is not water proof, so if it is in the elements then it might not be a good choice. I can think of 3 things that might work - wood glue, silicone, or E6000.

    Those flags can also be used to put on a plain T shirt. Use double sided binding iron on. Then sew around the flag for good measure.

    Looking forward to seeing the results. As a Custom Decorator there is not much I enjoy more than passing on what I have learned to others. Form, Function and Beauty! We CAN have it all!!
