I needed to find a good nightlight for my son's nursery. But rather than just buying a traditional nightlight, I decided to make one that was a bit more decorative. I found a nice garden ornament in the shape of an owl that fit well with the other decorations in the nursery. I removed the original solar lighting circuit and replaced it with a new light and power adapter. The end result was a colorful owl nightlight.

Step 1: Materials

Here are the tools and materials that you will need for this project:

Materials
Owl Garden Ornament
Battery Powered LED Light
