Repurposed Lighting Ideas for Outdoors

Don't you just love beautiful outdoor lighting?

I sure do and since repurposing is my game I have several great ideas for you to try. 

I've collected 7 of my favorite repurposed outdoor lighting ideas with links to the projects so you can see how they are done.

And this one is my very favorite... 

I created a hanging light for my gazebo using a very large colander! 

The stars that shine on the gazebo wall at night is gorgeous!

Another great idea for outdoor lighting are solar lights. 

I change up the dollar store stake lights and create all kinds of beautiful outdoor lights.
