5 Ways to Brighten Up Your Backyard

Looking for some ways to help brighten up your backyard? Our crew here at Handyman Connection of Mountain View has some ideas to make your backyard unique and trendy. Check out some creative ways to lighten up your outdoor area.

Mason Jars

One of the most popular lighting options are some lighted mason jars. They are easy to make and look good, too. Simply place some battery-operated candles in each mason jar. Place the jars around your yard. You can place them on the ground or take some copper wire and hang them around your yard. To get a little more creative, you  can also tint the mason jars to add a bit of color to your backyard.

Glow In The Dark Planters

Another creative way to brighten up your yard is to paint some pots and planters with glow in the dark paint. You can paint the entire planter, or you can get creative with some unique designs. This is also a great way to get the younger ones involved in a home project.

DIY Chandelier

With a few items that you can probably find around your home or at a local dollar store, you can create your own chandelier. All you need is a hula hoop, some stringed holiday lights, and string or wire. Simply wrap the lights around the hula hoop and hang the chandelier with the string or wire.

Tiki Torches

Tiki torches have always been a common way to light up a backyard, but you can make your torches unique by repainting them or by wrapping some stringed lights around them.

Recycled Glass Bottles

You can use your recycled glass bottles for outdoor light fixtures. Simply rinse the bottles and run stringed lights through each one. You can place them along the ground or take some wire and hang them. This is a great way to recycle and brighten up your backyard at the same time.
