Vintage Bundt Pan to Solar Flower!

I have had this pink vintage Bundt pan for a few years now. I have tried doing a couple things with it but nothing has stuck - I wanted more for it. I finally came up with something unique and special to help make it "shine". I turned it into a solar flower! (Those of you who know me are saying "of course you did" - lol)

My supplies included a thrift store candle holder, vintage Bundt pan, silicone, and a solar light.

I started by washing the candle holder, letting it dry, and painting it with Rustoleum green paint.  I let that dry completely.

I pulled the base off my solar light from Dollar Tree.

I added silicone to the bottom of the solar light.

I placed the solar light in the center of the Bundt pan, and I let that dry for 24 hours.

I added silicone to the top of the candle holder...

and I set the Bundt pan onto the candle holder.  I let that dry for 24 hours.

Here it is at sunset when the solar light begins to turn on.  The light shines into the Bundt pan reflecting inside and making it glow.

    This gives me some ideas to maybe add a second pan or tin inside the Bundt pan (without covering too much of the design) to create more "petals" and maybe spray painting the solar light cover a bright color. Now to find an old candle stand! Thanks for inspiring me!
