The 3 year old solar lights were dead.
New rechargable batteries cost more than new lights.
Instead of sending them to the landfill, I made garden ornaments from the old lights.
We're calling them "Fairy Bells".
This is the original light.
Then, I removed the base that fits into the post, and turned it around.
Then I turned the glass globe upside down, and reattached the post. The post fits over the stake.
And now we have "Fairy Bells" in the garden.
The only part I had to discard was the round flat top part that held the batteries and solar panel.
