With a little imagination and some old stuff you can dress your balcony, garden or the terrace of your house in an aura of magic. With the aforementioned ingredients, you can begin creating with your own hands unique lighting fixtures, which will shape your discreet seating areas outside the house.
If you are passionate of decorations and handmade objects, the few ideas provided by us right below will surely please you. For the “d.i.y.” outdoor light you only need a few empty bottles or jars, a few cans - also empty - or at least one set of Christmas lights. Each of these objects can be transformed into a decorative luminaire that will light your patio, balcony or various parts of the garden during summer nights.
Handmade decorative lanterns made of empty cans
Collect at least three tin cans, which you will need to pierce and then draw a sketch on your own liking. For the purpose of making the holes you will use an electric drill. Then, the perforated boxes will be painted in various colors; wait for the paint to dry and you will soon find their place in the balcony or terrace: down on the floor or ground, on a table or windowsill. To make them shine, you just need to put inside each lamp a lit candle.
Decor light trees in the garden
Sure you have at least one electrical installation for the Christmas tree around the house. This decorative idea will be useful for the summer as well. You can simply wrap it around the stem of a tree in your own backyard and then light it when it gets dark. If you live in an apartment building, a block of flats, you can decorate the balcony with a light installation as well, without any worry.
Another option for decorating the trees in the yard is winding the installation in the shape of a ball, which you will then hang from a branch.
Handmade lanterns in empty jars
For this idea of decorative light you'll need a few jars with lids, as many candles, one or two meters of metal chain and about 1 kilogram of beans or pebbles. The most difficult step is drilling the cover in several places, so you can pass through the metal chain while ensuring that the air will get into the jar, thus keeping the candle lit for a longer time. Then place a layer of beans or pebbles on the bottom of each jar, over which you adjust a candle. Lanterns are ready and you can hang them on the fence, a patio or the balcony of the apartment.
