How to make Orb Light for your Patio – DIY

I am going to use Embroidery Hoops to make my orbs!

Supplies needed to make hoop orb light

Embroidery hoops – 2 or 3 same size hoops depending how full your like your orbit
Solar lights purchased least expensive on Amazon
Steel wire 24 gauge is plenty
Metal Chain that you can pick at the Hardware Store too by the foot
Hot glue gun with glue sticks

So let’s begin!

First step is to paint! I have a lot of painting to do. Embroidery hoops and Chain are the ones that need my attention for sure to match my outdoors decor. I was only able to find a chain in gold. I got it because it was on sale for under $3. Spray painting will make it all go faster.

Important Note before you start … Don’t forget to disassemble the embroidery hoops before painting so all is nicely covered with paint.

While all is drying, let’s assemble our solar lights so they will be ready. Open up top portion of the light and place your wire. Bottom portion will nicely secure that. Turn the light over, take the ends and make them meet in the middle and twist a couple times. It is easy right?

Unscrew outter shell of the embroidery hoop, catch the chain with it and secure that together.

Insert inner embroidery hoops into outter hoop and tight all up with the screw that comes in the hoop set. Sounds a bit confusing but I am positive pictures are helping a lot with that.

Ta-daa!!! Embroidery Hoop orb is done. Love the way it turned out! Perfect Farmhouse Accent for my patio. What do you think?
