DIY Solar Garden Light

Check out this solar powered rope lights craft you can make using solar LED string lights. These DIY solar garden lights are a fun garden accent.

We have been wanting to add solar lighting to our front yard since we don’t really have much for outside lighting.

One of the reasons that I love using solar string lights is that they can be used in so many different ways. They are flexible and can be wound around a tree or a banister on your front stairs. 

This is really simple to make and quite forgiving. You can use whatever types of pots and flowers you have on hand. If you don’t have a Mason jar, you could use a clear glass ball instead to hold the solar lights.

If you want even more of a glow in your garden, you can wind more solar powered rope lights around the pots as well. These are some of the brightest solar rope lights I’ve seen so I think the display turned out really well. I hope you'll try it today.
