Image of gnomes with glowing eyes

In this video [Jack] will show you how to take a garden gnome and a solar light to create a FrankenGnome that is sure to creep out your friends and neighbors. This Hackaday original video is the first in a new series of videos that we will now be posting on a weekly basis.

You’ll notice a few symbols at the beginning of these videos. These symbols are there to help you understand what the video is all about. In the upper left corner, we have the skill level. These will range from 1 for very basic projects to 4 for highly advanced projects. The upper right corner breaks the video into two categories. The first category is ‘feature adding’.

DIY of The Week: How To Make Your Own Halloween Solar Lights



This one is so easy that a zombie could do it.

Pick up a half dozen or so solar lights. I find that this display looks best when you put them in large groups. You can line your driveway, light up your graveyard or porch without the worry of burning down the neighbourhood.

Look for great deals at garage sales and church sales. Usually the lanterns have seen better days but the light works fine, and since we are throwing that part away…it’s perfect. I got my box of a dozen lights for 5 bucks!

Pop the light mechanism out of the lantern and place in your chosen plastic halloween prop. You can glue it into place if you like.

Skulls and pumpkins were used for this tutorial but you can use anything really. The dollar store is filled with plastic cheesy props that take on a whole different look when illuminated, so get creative and light up the dark!
