A very elegant garden light with almost no cost and very easy to make.
Check it out! After you have gathered the materials it takes about 10 minutes....
And you will enjoy it all summer long.

Step 1: What you need

You will need:
- one plastic bottle in the same shape as shown. Here in the Netherlands they are very common with detergent or fabric softener.
- one old bicycle inner tyre, or at least 6 rings cut from a inner tyre.
- one broomstick, as long as you want.

- a pair of scissors
- a small hacksaw

- a tea light ( small candle in aluminium container)
<p>TRES COOL!</p>
Excelente, parabéns
<p>You don't eat it. And you probably use it outdoors.</p>
<p>This is a great idea. I want to use the idea and adapt it to use on my &quot;basic&quot; solar lights to make them more attractive. I'll see if the bottle allows enough light to charge the solar lights.</p>
<p>You can take your solar lights apart, place the cells somewhere out of view, not close to the led light and connect them using thin wires.</p><p>If you're really ambitious, you could place the accumulator in a piece of pipe, use it as the stem, build some leaf-like holder for the solar cell and attach it to the stem as a leaf.</p>
<p>Made a new one for indoors with led lamp. Works perfect with electrical wire through a metal tube and a socket on top. </p>
<p>I think these will look lovely</p><p> in the summer </p>
this is awesome love it..
<p>beautiful to see when lit</p>

Nice one Ruud! Will have some at my next BBQ here on Skopelos.

Really pretty! I might suggest using an LED flicker candle due to potential fire concerns. Nice looking and simple!
