Night parties have their own unique charms, but they can be a bit challenging. How will you create an atmosphere that will really elicit oohs and aahs from your guests – in darkness? Our friends at Homemade Home Ideas have generously shared with us a list of some of the most unique and beautiful DIY outdoor lighting ideas that will surely make your home look enchanting! The link follows after our own thoughts.

Here are some of my favorite ideas: Make Your Own Outdoor Candle Lantern – Many people would use tiki torches to line their walkways. However, these outdoor candle lanterns will really make your decor look more interesting. Try to get glass hurricanes in different sizes. These will make your outdoor candles look more eye-catching and unexpected.

Make Your Own Ice Lanterns – Ice lanterns leave a kind of romantic effect but they can of course only be used during the winter season when the temperatures are below freezing. Before freezing your ice lanterns, try to add a few drops of fragrance oils so that when the ice melts, the lanterns will leave a subtle scent to your home.

If you live in an area where the climate is more temperate, you can make your own no-melt “ice lanterns”! Use a frosted glass and line the inner part of the glass with a few fake leaves and fruits. Insert a battery operated candle in the middle of the frosted glass.

Magical Paper Lanterns – These star-shaped lanterns will make your trees look more lively. Try to use colored sheets of paper to create multi-colored paper lanterns.

Make Your Own Citronella Candles – Mosquitoes are such pesky insects that will really make for a major party downer. You can make your own citronella candles by filling the wax in tin cans. You can choose to decorate the tin cans by wrapping the outer part of the cans with yarn. You can also use twine!

Cup Cake Lights – If you have LED lights at home, you can use pretty paper cup liners. These are perfect for themed parties!
