Dollar Tree Bobber Light

5 Materials
30 Minutes

This is a fast and easy DIY light that looks great by the pool! Check out what I did below.


What you’ll need:

2 bowls - one red and one white (both the same size)

led light (sometimes called a puck light)


hot glue gun


This is the light that you’ll need. I found this at the Dollar Tree.

On the bottom of the bowls, there will be stickers so you will need to remove these.

Next, grab your e6000 glue and put the glue all the way around the edge of the bowl. Make sure not to put too much as you don't want it overflowing. This will be the bowl at the bottom of the light so I think it's best to use the red bowl.

Then, take your white bowl and place it on top of the red bowl where you applied the glue. You can just wipe any excess glue off with a paper towel.

Then take your push light and remove the sticky attachment. Mine came off pretty easily.

Next, apply a small dab of E6000 on the white bowl in the center and place your push light (light side down) onto the glue.

Let it dry.

See how easy this was!

Once it's dry, you can apply any details you like. My daughter helped me with this cute vinyl which says, "Let's go fishing".

Check out my video too!

I love how this project turned out! They look even cooler at night.

Happy crafting!
