Here is some sort of tiki jack-o-lantern things that I made using some extra solar tiki torch lights and pvc left over from making fake bamboo flower planters. I think they will look pretty good in the back yard.


Not much to look at in the light...


Lights out, much better.

I designed the face and tree in Illustrator then transferred the pattern with carbon paper then used an x-acto knife. Now that you mentioned it, a hot knife probably would have been easier.
