Add some light to your garden by creating this DIY Waterdrop Solar Lights project! Your garden will look like it came straight out of a fairy tail once you hook up this colorful solar light to a water spout. Solar lights are the perfect (and inexpensive) way to light up your yard during those summer nights where all you want to do is be outside and enjoy the weather. You don't need to be a light technician to install these DIY solar lights. Your backyard will look as if a million fireflies are lighting it up once you plant these outdoor lights!

From the blogger: "Add some serious bling to your garden with these DIY Waterdrop Solar Lights! This is the project that has been lighting up Pinterest all summer and spreading like wildfire! You probably have some of the materials on hand already: some old candlesticks or a lamp base, a hose bib and a few other inexpensive and easy-to-get items. The full step-by-step tutorial over at The Navage Patch is easy to follow, and you'll have your own Waterdrop Solar Lights in no time!"

Wow, I want this! How pretty and creative this is and it rivals some of the solar light creations I have seen in high end catalogues! This would look so,pretty in your garden, in a Lilly or fish pond, and I could see this as a source of comfort and calm in a hospital or rehab setting or spiritual center. And so nice that you could get the faucet at garage and estate sales.... Wonderful project, so creative and practical,too in lighting the way! Thanks for sharing!

These are gorgeous! I can't believe they are homemade! I am definitely saving this project to make for my garden in the future!
