Have you ever wanted to have nice landscape lights? so you went to the store and looked at the price tag and said I need 8 or 10 wall scones to put on my fence. well that will be $500 plus the wiring needed. well that is what I said. I don't know about you but I don't have $500 for lights. all the landscape lights that I have had in the past were made out of plastic, but they have the halogen bulbs that get hot and require a lot of power. after some brain storming I figured out I could make my own. Fallow along and I will show you how.
