Solar Stained Glass Hanging Lights
I always love solar lights around my home. I used a glass candlestick glued to small cup/vase at Easter. Now that Easter is over and spring is in full swing, I decided to repurpose.
Items used to create solar stained glass light.
First take 2-3 drops of food coloring mixed with 1/4 cup Mod Podge. Using small paint brush add one color at a time to inside of glass cups.
Flip upside down allowing paint to drip out to paper plate.
Note: just below candlestick top of cup area left unpainted allowing sun to charge solar panel.
Next step: turn oven on to LOWEST TEMP. Place glass upside down on foil lined cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Carefully flip glass over for another 20 minutes. Cool completely.
Close up looks like stained glass.
Using E6000 add to black outer area on light.
Now attach to glass cup. Allow to dry overnight.
Attach heavy gauge wire around candle stick add another piece of wire and loop around the attached candle stick wire. This will assure light hangs evenly and can be adjusted. Secure wire with needle nose plier.
Here is a pic of both lights with full solar effect.
I really love the day and night look of this craft.
so my piece has been outside a few days and yesterday we had major rain. I would advise using a varnish inside before glue solar light! This should prevent clouding and peeling... 🤔
