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
Owl Garden Ornament
Battery Powered LED Light
Heat Shrink Tubing (optional)
Rotary Cutting Tool
Soldering Iron and Solder
Step 2: Remove Any Unwanted Parts From the Garden Ornament
After removing the original circuit, I used an old toothbrush to clean out the dirt and debris that had accumulated inside the owl.
