This project is so easy it should be illegal! I think this project is by far my favorite and was the most shocking transformation of two old stumps–it’s amazing what a little bees wax will do to wood!

The first step to make these beautiful stump lights is to remove the solar light from the post it comes attached to.
Next, determine which paddle bit fits the solar light post the best. In this case, with the $4.88 single solar lights from Home Depot, the 13/16 bit fits perfectly.
After you’ve chosen your bit, eye up the middle of your stump and make a mark.
*Note: I had taken a wire brush and cleaned my stumps up before beginning the drilling process.
