DIY Outdoor lighting

If you're like my family, there is nothing we love more than a little s'more roast out in the back yard on warm summer nights. I've been toying with the idea of finding a cute way to light the back yard. Tikki torches, light strands, etc.... 

I came across a wonderful idea on Pinterest and thought this would be a GREAT addition. How cheap, and easy! 

Find some old light fixtures at your local D.I./thrift store:



add some of those extra strands of mini white Christmas lights you have stashed in a box somewhere:


And ta da...What a brilliant idea!!
