Solar lighting is a good choice if you want to enhance the look for your house using the decoration. Solar lighting is popular to be used both on the back yard and on the front yard. Outdoor situation is perfectly matched with such lighting. Based on the name, you may guess that solar lighting is related to the sun light. Both in the morning and in the afternoon, the tiny solar panels located of the peak of this lighting can soak up the light of the sun to fill their power. When the condition of the surrounding is dark, this solar lighting begins to open the circuit containing photo resistor. Through this material, the solar lighting can generate and illuminate LED lighting for brighter look at the yard.

If you are interested to have a solar lighting to be installed at home, you may go the stores. You will get various types, shapes, sizes, prices and forms. Decorating your house using such solar lighting can be a challenging situation since you need to place the items in the best appearance. Let me guide you on how to install solar lighting on the yard. What you need to do first is purchasing the acrylic paint in the market. If you have chosen your favorite colors, you may put this paint into the color pallet. You may pour more than one color since we can combine them later. Then, you need to get a paintbrush used to ornament the 16 oz glass canning jar. You have to layer the paint in the glass jar in soft and thin method. If the paint is too thick, the light produced in the glass jar will face some difficulties to go through.

You need to locate these solar lightings to the exposure of sun light for about six hour. The solar panel will be able to absorb the sun light rapidly.

You may need to place it in a row. You may place the solar lighting in the shape of buttery, fruit, cube, or cylinder here.
