Before we saw you a few light decoration Ideas for home outdoor, let’s find out how solar lights work and which their advantages are.
How solar lights work?
Solar lights use photovoltaic technology to absorb the sun’s energy during the day and store it in a battery. When the night falls, this battery uses that energy to power an LED (light-emitting diode) bulb and generates light.
The global demand for less carbon-intensive energy sources and the current energetic crisis have turned consumers' attention to alternative ways to illuminate their houses. Solar lighting is the typical example with a lot of advantages:
1. Innovative solar lighting is really useful in places where it isn’t possible to connect to a central power grid, like camping, streets or big outdoor spaces.
2. Each lamp generates carbon-free electricity
3. Solar lights installation is easy and cheap
4. They require low maintenance
5. Modern garden lighting is very attractive
6. The outdoor solar lights are weatherproof and designed to withstand sunny days, rainy nights and small snowy days

Their unique carved flower petal and cracked glass globe design provide visual pleasure as garden décor. When they glow, their reflections in the water will duplicate, creating an eye-catching scenery.
Also hanging solar lights above a garden pond or your pool you will achieve the same result and get extra style points.
6. Make your own handicrafts with hidden lighting
If you love handicrafts, care for the environment and give attention to detail, here is a beautiful DIY home decor Idea: The next time you go to the beach or the forest, get a few sea wood or tree branches depending on what you intend to create. Paint them or leave them in their natural color. Then, place a solar lamp in the center and tie the branches or glue them together. To achieve the effect of diffusing light, remember to leave enough spots open at the top. Finally find an empty, dark corner in your garden and give it life. Every night that your creation will light up, you will feel proud of the result.
