On a recent mining the curbs outing I found 10 solar lights, some the dollar store variaty and some fairly nice ones, all of them worked! I then kept my eyes open for interesting objects to attach the lights to. The table I am working at is a combination of curb finds as is the hotglue gun !

Step 1: supplies

You can purchase or repurpose all these supplies or use others, here is what I found and or bought.

 solar lights
 empty wine bottle
 empty liqueur bottle
 a large plastic pretzel container
 hotglue and gun

 glass candle holder/vase $1.us
 decorative glass rounds $6.us
nice idea! i'm footling around with some cheap solar lights atm and this might just be an answer to what in hell i am meant to be doing with them :) thank you!
Thank you for commenting ! I'm always thinking outside the box, I'm looking for a large olive oil can to make a pierced lantern kind of lamp from, using a solar light. Cut a hole in the top for the light and some kind of design around the sides. Let us see what you come up with !
Ooo sounds interesting. i take it you've asked at resteraunts (spelling?!) and the like. We used to get through loads when i worked in a kitchen.
actually I only thought about it yesterday so I haven't even asked around, I also have several paint cans that might work
