DIY Outdoor Lighting Ideas

1. Recycled Wine Bottle Torch

My favorite remake of a tiki torch, this wine bottle torch is so pretty, I’ve added 8 of them around our recently installed deck. If you want something super cool but cheap, make the DIY torches for your yard or backyard patio. You can even add citronella oil to them and keep away the bugs. We love being able to eat outside and have friends over without worrying about having the mosquitos join us.

If your patio or yard needs some gorgeous lighting, it does not get much better than this solar mason jar light. I made four of these with some pretty vintage jars that have a slight blue-green tint to them and am now wishing I had a few more. When I got to use them last summer at our pool parties, people could not stop commenting on them when they lit up at sunset.

Another inexpensive but really fabulous lighting idea that uses mason jars and solar power, this one casts a pretty patterned glow on your table. I highly recommend making a few now so you will have them for your next outdoor dinner party under the stars.

Rope lighting can be found easily at your hardware store, but the one I bought never looked quite like this. When you light up a walkway properly, the effect can be transformational. I love this idea because it also makes it much easier to walk in the dark 😉

6. Outdoor Tuna Can Lantern

Who would know this amazing DIY lighting idea was made from a tuna can? I certainly did a double take. The only question is do you tell people who remark on their beauty what they are actually made of?
