Hanging Flower Basket Light

Hello again! Happy Fall officially! I can hardly believe it is that time already. Of course, if you spend time on the blogosphere, it has seemed like fall for a month now!  I will be joining the ranks with my own Fall Home Tour on Monday, so be sure to come back for a visit!

Today I have a little and fairly simple project that I put together. I bought these hanging flower baskets at a yard sale several years ago. I have used them for various things, buy they have been sitting for awhile now. I also have had the green lights, which are firefly lights for several years. They slowly fade in and out like flreflies. We don’t have real fireflies here, so I had to go with faux ones! Anyways, I never have found a good place to use them. So I decided to combine them with some Christmas lights I found at Goodwill.Outdoor Hanging Plant Holder Light

The first thing I did was wire the two baskets together on one side to make sort of a hinge. This made it a little easier to put the whole thing together without it coming apart each time I moved it around.

Next I added in the firefly lights. I wired them in various spots so they would hang all around inside the baskets. This was followed by the Christmas lights. I added a piece of wire every couple of lights or so. I first went around the inside of one basket and then around the other.

When I finished wiring all the lights in, I wired the two baskets completely together. Now all there was to do, was find a place to hang it and plug it in!  I decided to add it to my fall front porch, to make a nice welcoming light.
