Don't throw away those old solar lights! Broken or old solar lights are the perfect thing to house your succulents and decorate your garden or walkway!
Time: 30 MinutesCost: $0Difficulty: Easy
I used the old solar glass light we had in our yard. I had a few that weren't working so well anymore, so I went around my yard collecting them and laid them all out on a table.
I only needed the glass cup part and the stake, so I took the top part off to use the rest for my project.
I stuck the solar light stake into a milk crate to hold it steady, then put a few handfuls of soil into the cup. If you're planning on planting succulents, make sure that your soil is a dry, sandy mix. Succulents don't like to soak their roots.
I transplanted some succulents and other plants I had in my yard and around my garden into the cups.
