How To Make Outdoor Yard Decor On A Budget

I love going to thrift stores and letting my imagination run wild. What is one person's junk is another person's treasure right? I took some of these items, updated them, added a solar light, and turned them into outdoor yard decor.

I had these 2 candle holders that I bought from a thrift store years ago. I had used them a while back when we were camping and you can see that tutorial here -


It was time to change them up for my home.

I washed them, and then gave them a new coat of Rustoleum black paint I had on hand.

Once the paint dried, I put some old glass light fixtures on top of the candle holders and adhered them with silicone. I pulled the base off of 2 globe solar lights from Walmart and placed them inside the flower.

Now I have these solar flowers on either side of my porch.

I had this candle holder that I bought from a thrift store. I used it as a cup holder next to a chair. It was time for a change.

I washed the candle holder, and then spray painted it with Rustoleum green paint I had on hand.

Once the paint dried I placed a red candle holder on top. I pulled the base off of a dollar store solar light and put it inside the red candle holder for added glow.

I had found this other wrought iron base at a thrift store.

I glued this red vase that I also found at the same thrift store to the candle holder using silicone. I pulled the base off a dollar store solar light and placed it in the vase.

I placed the new flowers in my yard.

A friend of mine gave me this butterfly. It used to be a candle holder but the glass parts were long gone.

I washed it and spray painted it with Rustoleum copper paint i had on hand.

I pulled the base off of 2 globe solar lights from Walmart and slipped them into where the candle holders once were.

I placed my butterfly in the yard... now it reminds me of a firefly at night.
