DIY LED Garden Lights – Recession friendly garden aesthetics


Got a garden party coming up but no pretty garden lighting to set it off? Run out of “buy-garden-lighting” funds in the post-GFC world? Why not DIY with some cheap and nifty LED garden lights using single LEDs, lithium cell batteries and glass jars, devised by the folks at EvilMadScientist. While I wouldn’t advocate mass battery usage, and therefore potential wastage, in the name of permanent garden lighting, it’s a nice idea for a temporary solution. Some assembly required.


For a late night summer party, we wanted to deploy an array of maybe 20 or so little LED garden lights along the periphery of our back yard. And since it was for a one-time event, there wasn’t much sense in buying (or building) a set of nice looking permanent solar lights. So here is an alternative: make your own ultra-low cost temporary garden lights using LEDs, lithium coin cells, and mason jars.
