Outdoor Glowing Balls.
This idea is so cool and really cheap too. The things you can do with Christmas lights:



Total Cost: $3

Just stick the glass shades anywhere you want and stuff them full of mini lights. Attach an extension cord if you need to and hide it under your garden dirt or mulch. I have my lights on a timer so they come on every night at dusk. They look beauuuuutiful. And it wasn’t a fluke that I found these in a second hand store. Every time I’ve gone into a second hand store I’ve noticed these shades there. Goodwill, Salvation Army, random Bible Stores … they’re always in there. Flea markets have them as well! They’re usually around $1 – $3 each.You can also get them at regular old hardware stores. But they’re about $10 – $15. And it would be stupid to spend $10 – $15 when you can spend $1 – $3. Right?
