Outdoor Wall Sconces

5 Materials
25 Minutes

Grab some decorative mirrors and a couple of frames from Dollar Tree to make these beautiful outdoor wall sconces.

To start this project, I grabbed two decorative mirrors at Dollar Tree and two hexagon frames.  

I wanted to give my new sconces a gold color so disassembled the frames so that I could paint them.  

Then, I used Rustoleum metallic spray paint in gold and painted all of the pieces. I did this in my garage to make sure I didn’t get paint on anything else.  

I gave the hexagon frames about 2.5 light coats of the gold metallic spray paint across the surface allowing for about 15 minutes of dry time between coats.


With the hexagons painted and dry it was time to move on and attach them to the mirrors. I wanted to position my mirrors in a way that I was able to connect two points on the edge of the hexagon with the points on the mirror.  

When I knew where I wanted them attached, I added a little bit of hot glue and lined them up.


I held them together until the glue was dry.  

Next, it was time to add the LED lights. The lights I chose had sticky backs so it was easy to slip off the covers. 

Once the cover was removed, I stuck them right to the back of the mirror. I love that they came with a remote because it makes them super easy to turn off and on.  

Finally, it was time to hang them up outside.  

Here are the finished outdoor wall sconces. I wanted to make sure you saw it at different points of the evening so that you can see the difference. I love that I can control them with a remote, so I can change the colors. I can set a timer and they are really easy to control. These turned out so cool and they make my outdoor space look beautiful. I hope you enjoyed this project and feel inspired to try it yourself.

    Doesn’t the hot glue melt outside? When sunlight and summer heat hits anything I have with hot glue outdoors the glue melts.
