Updating Solar Lights for Fall

4 Materials
1 Hour

I like updating my solar lights for every season to give them a different look. This year I spotted wire copper colored baskets at my Dollar store that I thought would be perfect for fall.

Here are the 4 wire baskets I purchased at Dollarama.

Here are my two solar lights I will be using.

First step was to take a basket and center my light in the middle.

I will be securing the light with wire to the bottom of the basket.

I brought the wire through two holes at the bottom of my light. Repeat on the opposite side of light.

Place light back in the bottom of basket and wrap your wire around one of the basket wires to attach. Do the same on the other side.

Next I bought two leaf garland from the Dollar store.

I took the garland and wrapped it loosely around the bottom, pulling a few of the leaves through the basket.

Next step I removed the hanger from my solar light and took one of the baskets and turned it upside down and put my hanger through the sides and reattached to my light.

Now it is time to attach the two baskets. I did this by wrapping pieces of the wire together to secure.

Here is my light complete.

I love how these turned out.

This was a super easy project. They look great during the day....

And even better at night.
