Just read through the entire thread and I find myself wanting to see more! I love low budget ideas, especially since I've been going a little crazy lately on my Tiki stuff.

It's that time of year again folks. All kinds of Halloween junk all over the place. I found these cool little battery operated strobe lights the other day for $3.99. The have LED lights and are fairly bright. They also have a small swing out stand and a dial to control the flashing from slow to fast. This summer I found an awesome antique ships port light and was going to light it up with a cord and a bulb. Instead I put the strobe in the lantern and set it for the slowest flash setting. I got the red strobe and the slow glowing flash through the old grimy red lens looks perfect. Lots of cheap lighting effects out there right now. I thought I would post a few pics and let's folks know that they come in a variety of colors as well.

The big lantern on the right is the one I put the strobe in. It looks great in the low lighting of the bar but it's hard to tell in the photo.

I saw a display of different lights like that at the Halloween store. I really had to pull myself away before buying a bunch of them.

My wife and I have been using
Ikea's Dioder lights for lighting my Tiki collectible shelves.

I purchased this to get a cool water light look. Multiple colors and speeds. Works well!

I have been making these with cardboard scraps and sharpie just freeforming it
Some come out better than others but it gets the tiki creative energy flowing without having to power up the chainsaw

Just finished this "float" lamp last night, with almost no budget to work on. The most expensive part was the rope - the other parts include a re-purposed and painted globe shade from a ceiling fan (free), the cord & socket from a yard-sale table lamp ($1), and an LED candelabra bulb ($3).
