Quick Rusty Patio Star Lights

Here's a quick project, 5 minutes or less! I used a rusty bed spring, a rusty cottage cheese mold and a battery operated votive. Slip the tip of the wire from the skinny end of your bed spring into one of the holes in the mold, and place a battery operated light inside. Ta-da! You're done. Of course you could use a real votive candle in a glass holder, maybe wire across the back to make it secure. Or use clusters of the molds with a string of white lights. Or....hang the molds over the lights strung up :D

Cherry, I keep thinking about this and so many other really nice country decorating crafts you have come up with... I think you should write an article for country living or one of those magazines. "Fabulous Country Crafts"
or something like that.
