Now that summer has arrived we're all spending a lot more time outside and are probably looking for easy ways to improve our outdoor spaces. Attractive outdoor lighting can be expensive but Karen at The Art of Doing Stuff came up with a way to create a high-end, high-impact look for just a few dollars and a moment of your time. See how she did it after the jump.

Karen simply stuck a string of white lights into opaque glass light fixtures to create lovely outdoor lighting.

If you don't have any extra fixtures on hand, they are always easy to find at thrift stores for next to nothing. This is a great way to to spruce up your outdoor space without breaking the bank. Check out Glowing Outdoor Orbs | The Art of Doing Stuff for all the details and more photos.
