    These would be so pretty in a turquoise-ish greeny color! I love this!

  4. Jenny says:

    This is an awesome idea–I’ve wanted to get solar lights but didn’t want to spend so much to get nice looking ones. Are there any pictures of these in action at night? I’d love to see how they glow. 🙂

    Pam, this project is almost as cute as you are. Thanks for the tutorial! These will look great along my fence.

  7. patty says:

    Nice. But could you have painted the original light stake just as well? Instead of taking it apart.

    Patty-I bet you could use the lights-you wouldn’t get as much as an effect but you could definitely do it. Although,I’m not sure if the mod podge would adhere to the plastic light. If you try it, definitely take a picture. 🙂

    Lynn-Mod podge is a glue, sealer and finish all in one. It comes in a variety of types.

    Jenny-here is an action shot at night.

  11. These are so pretty, I love how they turn out translucent. Your videos are so much fun to watch. ha. 😀
