Problem: Solar lights staked in yard are difficult to mow & weed eat around. Solution: Terra cotta flower pots & a bag of quick-krete. Mix concrete according to the package directions. Scoop into flower pot & immediately put light into the center (remove the stake first). It sets quickly so do one at a time. Once finished, you have cute, functional & completely portable outdoor lights. (Note: you will only need about a quarter of a bag of quick-krete to fill 8 pots).
It's easy, fast, and fun to create your own stepping stones from a couple of containers and a bag of quick-mix concrete. Really make the pavers something special by casting leaves, stones, shells, and more into the surface.
