Make Your Garden Path Lights Wind Activated #NatureAndTechnology

Via Instructables by DIY Hacks and How Tos

We are all familiar with the traditional garden path lights. In this project, I am going to show you how to make them react to the wind so that they light up and flicker when the wind blows. These wind lights add an interesting visual element to your garden decorations.

Materials:
Solar Powered Garden Path Light
10 inch Flexible Insulated Wire
A Small Piece of Wood (about 1″ x 3″ x 1/8″)
Paper Clip (or other stiff wire)

Tools:
Drill and Bit Set
Soldering Iron and Solder
Wire Cutters
Screw Driver
Knife
Needle Nose Pliers
