Take 2 metal planter, make globe using zip ties or black pipe cleaners, fill with strands of lights, hang… wala!!

Some tips:

If you want a longer chain then the planter chains provides, pick up an “S” hook and chain from your local hardware store.

I love these galvanized planters used for this purpose. You can use any kind of planter for this as long as its some what small width wise, and tall enough to prevent your Tiki Torches from falling over.

Now get out there and add some tropical ambiance to your yard!
