Introduction: Solar Led Light Bucket

Picture of Solar Led Light Bucket

These solar light buckets are pretty cool easy to make and a great gift. All you do is put yard solar lights in a white 5 gallon bucket add some stickers and you have a great yard light. Also if you silicone the solar lights so that there water proof you can take it camping for a night light and also use it to transport stuff. I would recommend putting a rock in it so that it doesn't blow over.

Making this is pretty straight forward. Solar lights are pretty cheap or can repair broken ones for this project. I used a drill and a drill bit made for drilling holes for door nobs. I drilled out 5 holes for the solar lights. Then i sanded down the holes. Then i pushed the solar light in the holes and used silicone to glue them to the lid. I ordered horse decals online that put on it for decoration.


Cool, I bet this gives your yard some great ambiance!
