How do you feel about garden lighting?
I love it as long as it's soft and sets a mood....oh and doesn't cost me much
I've got little candle holders spotted around the yard and I've got those fairy light balls I made with wire planter baskets up on the deck....
...and now, I've got another lot of lights that provide a beautiful glow once the sun goes down...and it's a way of using up some bits and pieces you either have at home, or find at the local op-shop/thrift store
I thought I'd post this little project that I mentioned I'd show Natalie over at In The Night Sky. . She's recently done a mini-makeover in her laundry and powder room and had this rather "gorgeous" amber light fitting in the laundry that she's now replaced.
It's way past it's use-by-date inside, but believe it or not, it's still useful and it's colour is perfect for the GARDEN!
All you have to do is get yourself a little battery operated tea light candle, turn the amber ball upside down in a garden bed, with the candle inside...and watch it glow
I put a few of these around the garden for Christmas and again for a recent party and they looked wonderful.
The latest issue of Real Living magazine has a feature on garden lighting too and it has some lovely ideas.
It shows us different ways to set the mood in the garden...or pool
Even in trees.....
Lovely ideas that can be adapted with a little imagination
I've got more, inexpensive projects for garden lighting...
...and as soon as I can locate the source so I can give the appropriate credit...I'll post about it.
