Materials Needed:

Step 1. Charge The Solar Lights For The Twigs

Bring your solar lights outside, flip the charging switch on, and place them in full sunlight.

Step 2. Protect The Ikea Twigs From The Elements

Lay the branches for this twig lights stand, out on a tarp and spread them so there isn’t much overlap.

Step 3. Cut The Form Tube For The Concrete Base

Mark 2” down the concrete form tube and around the tube in several spots.

Step 4. Add Smooth, Waterproof Material To The Tube Ring Mold

We are going to add acetate to the inside of the cardboard to give the sides of the concrete a nice shiny look.

Step 5. Create The Base For The DIY Twig Lights Stand Mold

Cut another piece of acetate to about 13 x 13” and then use hot glue to glue the cardboard ring to the bottom of it, and from the outside.
