Have you ever wanted to spruce up your backyard patio with some lighting but you don’t have anywhere to hang the lights to? Then I have the perfect patio update for you! Learn how to add outdoor lighting anywhere with these custom posts.
To make the light posts you’ll need the following:
- Large and heavy Ceramic pots.
- Plastic pots you don’t mind destroying
- Gravel or rocks
- 8ft 2″x 2″ posts
- Screw hooks
- Enbrighten Seasons Color Changing Café Lights
Step 1- Gather all your supplies
Step 2- Mix the cement by pouring it into a separate bucket with water.
Step 3- Mix really well.
Step 4- Pour the cement into a plastic pot.
Step 5- Add the post and let dry. You will need to prop the post up against something till it sets.
Step 6- once the cement is completely dry you can move into the ceramic pot and add extra gravel and rocks for added support. You can even add soil and plants once your all complete.
Now make it all come together by screwing the hooks into the top of the post. I made 2 light posts and then added 2 screws to my existing patio structure. But if you don’t have a structure then you can make 4 or more light posts.
Finally start hanging the lights and get ready to enjoy! I used Jasco’s Enbrighten Seasons Color Changing Café Lights and I LOVE these lights! They have so many features that you’ll never get bored.
For starters it comes with a built in timer, a remote where you have 16 colors to choose from, a dimming option, and it’s linkable up to 750 feet. You can find them here.
I added them over my new patio space and created a sitting area underneath. During the day they create and distinguish the space, while at night they totally transform the space and add so much light.
I know my daughters favorite part is all the color options. With the Enbrighten Seasons Color Changing Café Lights the options are endless including my daughters favorite, rainbow lights. Above are 3 options; rainbow, classic white, and pink. I think my favorite color is the teal option!
These light posts were so easy to make and the new Jasco’s Enbrighten Color Changing Lights add the perfect color ambiance to the space. I can’t wait to enjoy summer evenings under them.
Here’s a nighttime pic to give you a better idea how much light these Jasco’s Enbrighten Color Changing Lights put off.
Now I’m off to enjoy my new backyard space!
