I am the kind of person who loves to save money. I love to use things and recycle, because it makes me feel like I get more for my money.
So when I buy things like pretzel rods, which I normally don’t buy unless I am being extravagant, I like to know that the pretzels are enjoyed and I can continue on with the container and create something with that as well.
Silly, maybe, but I love when I create something super useful- this DIY Glass Marble Patio Light.

Add a dot of glue onto each marble. then start at the bottom and adhere around the lower part of the container.

Stack the marbles around the container. Allow drying time every couple of rows if you see the marble begin to shift or fall down.

Once the whole container is covered, add the smaller stones around the lid, and decorate the top as well, filling in with the smaller stones in gaps.

Just open the lid and turn off the light, it’s safe outside with the lid back on.

    What do you use for light?

      Battery operated fairy lights would be great! They have a steady mode, or they can twinkle. And a lot of them have timers, so they'll turn on, and off , at the same time every night.

    I buy pretzel rods at Aldi that come in a big container but the lid is brown. The light wouldn't show through it very well. What color was your lid?

      Looks like she used a tub with a clear plastic lid. I buy these at Walmart, or Aldis.

      IKEA also carries them, plus they carry extra batteries.
