Awesome Outdoor Lighting Ideas

At Handyman Connection of Blue Ash, we’re all for making your house feel more like a home. If you’re looking to spice up the backyard patio, or liven up the front porch, check out some of these really cool outdoor lighting ideas. They’re sure to help your home welcome the fall season with open arms.

Hanging Jars

Hang the ever-popular Mason style jars to railings or other areas with a metal wire and a battery-operated candle. You can reach out to electricians perth to get some ideas. You can even tint the jars to match your outdoor décor with a little translucent glass paint.

Hula Hoop Chandelier

This easy DIY project will have your patio looking airy and lit with just a few items you can grab at the store. All you need is a hula-hoop, some holiday lights (get creative with colors if that tickles your fancy), some glue and string. It’ll make your backyard shine, while making your guests jealous.

Beer Bottle Runner

Recycling wine or beer bottles and turning them into a cool light fixture has become a really popular, creative way to add light to your home. After having a couple of beers with your friends, clean out the bottles and string colorful holiday lights throughout the bottles to create a lighted beer bottle runner. It’s sure to wow your guests!

Painted Planters

Consider painting a planter with glow-in-the-dark paint, for an extra special way to light up your backyard. It’ll help to feature those plants you’ve been working so hard to upkeep too.

Tin Can Lanterns

Tin can lanterns are a fairly popular idea that has been around for a while. If you haven’t tried it yet, the crew at Handyman Connection of Blue Ash would definitely encourage you to give it a go. Save a few tin cans, spray paint them with your backyard’s accent colors, poke a few design holes in them, place light bulbs throughout and let it shine. This is a really simple project that turns out really nice too.

Tiki Torches

For those of you who aren’t interested in a complete DIY lighting project, consider revamping a couple of standard tiki torches. These are a fun way to light up the yard, but also show a little personality. Consider repainting them, adding a few stringed lights on the sides, or creating a tiki torch arrangement alongside some flowers and other lighting fixtures.

Japanese Lanterns

The ever-popular Japanese lantern can be found at most home goods or craft stores. These are a great way to spice up a party or even to keep around the back yard. They come in many colors, so you’ll be able to find one to go along with your setting in a jiffy!
