I’m in love with that feeling of sitting outside when the sun has set and having the warmth of a fire and the soft glow of lights around you.
We are in the process of finishing up our back deck and I have some lights out there right now but really can you ever have too many? I was searching through Pinterest the other day looking at different outdoor lighting ideas and came across these six that really stood out to me.
They are all so beautiful and something you could easily do yourself. Take a look at the sites as they all share how to create these for your own yard.
This first one is absolutely stunning. To create a gorgeous garden water drop light, all she needed was a watering globe, a candle holder, some solar lights and a few items from the hardware store.
If you love the atmosphere of a fire pit but maybe can’t have one, this is a perfect alternative. Stack some logs and place some string lights randomly around them to give it a firelight glow. Also nice for an evening gathering where small ones might be running around.
Wreaths are always a great way to decorate year round. And this one designed with lights is one that can be changed up seasonally just by adding in some some holly and berries for Christmas or some greenery and flowers for Spring. It also makes a beautiful statement all on its own.
These mason jar lights are so pretty for that rustic farmhouse feel. Little groupings of them throughout the yard would be so beautiful.
If you are entertaining on a beautiful evening this is a great way to add atmosphere.
And this last idea is a fun way to turn those wire hanging baskets into a glowing orb light. A few of these hanging from the patio roof would look so pretty.
Hope you enjoyed these ideas as much as I did. There is so much amazing talent out there to inspire any idea you may have. Please take a minute to check out these great ideas to get your summer lighting inspiration going.
I may have to try all of these out because I really can’t pick just one favourite! Which one would you like to try for your outdoor lighting?
