DIY Outdoor Light In 4 Easy Steps!

Are you looking for an affordable and easy outdoor light to sit on your table or carry with you out to the shed or garden? Or do you imagine placing several along a footpath to the lead the way to an outdoor evening cocktail party? I was recently in touch with Patrizia Furrer from Atelier Lilaliv in Switzerland who wanted to share her brilliant DIY Outdoor Light project using the IKEA SOLVINDEN solar lamp. This project is under $10 and the results are chic and super smart. In fact, I really liked how it turned out so I invited Patrizia to share it with us on decor8. I like a good DIY that doesn’t look homemade or cheesy (there is a fine line, right?) and this one definitely fit the bill. Check it out.
