There’s something special about a summer night out in the backyard. Warm fresh air, stars, good gals… At night, being in the garden feels like you are allowed to share in the quiet part of nature’s day… It’s calming, a little mysterious, and a lot of excitement. However, after the sun goes down, we have two problems hanging out in the garden. One is light, bugs are the other. We have a creative idea for both!
This DIY tiki torches will bring light to your outdoor garden spaces so you can enjoy the night. In addition, these projects can also be used as a mosquito repellent by using citronella torch oil. What a great benefit! This is easy and fun, and they have a great artistic appeal to them as well. Okay, let’s start! Again, if you want to get rid of mosquitoes, just apply citronella oil to your wine bottles torches. Bugs will disappear! I also love the scent of citronella candles mixed with the scent of the BBQ.
After searching to find an affordable torch and not your usual ones, I find out that unless I wanted wicker or bamboo, I would have to be more resourceful and found this stunning DIY tutorial.
