My porch light fixture doesn't work, so I wanted something that both looked nice, and would make coming home at night a little less dark and creepy.
First, you'll need a nice looking candle holder, that can be hung. I found these for $2 at Goodwill!
Hang the candle holder from a wire outdoors, this makes it easier to get at those awkward angles.
Spray it evenly with spray paint (any color is fine, I chose a metallic grey). Allow 10 - 15 minutes to dry, and spray a 2nd coat.
Spray a coat of finishing spray, allow it to dry, and apply a 2nd coat. Make sure to cover it extremely well.
Choose your decorations. I have 2 different size chains, of that same color. I'll show you how I attached it.
With a pair of needle nose pliers, open the end link of the chain, hook it through itself, and pinch it shut using the pliers.
It should look like this. I hooked this around the right holder (there are 3 holders on mine) I hooked the other end on the very left holder.
I found the center of the chain and hung it over the center holder, used a thin jump ring, and have it through both sides of the chain, keeping it in place.
I took the thinner chain, and have it draped in front of the thick chain, and I hooked the ends the same way I did the other chain.
As a last minute idea, I added a jewel to the center of the thin chain. I used a jump ring and the pliers to attach it.
You should have as many solar lights as you do candle holders. I bought these for only $1 at a dollar store ($2 for the holder, $3 for 3 lights, this project only cost me $5!). Twist and pull the light off of the stake, it comes off pretty easy. The light on the left is the one I pulled out.
Apply hot glue to the bottom of the light, and quickly put it in the candle holder. Make sure you cover it good before sticking it.
It should sit like this.
You can now hang it outside, and it should look something like this (minus the bird poop on the house).
