Wind Activated Garden Lights

This is my first project that I made for Make Magazine's new DIY Hacks & How Tos YouTube series.

We are all familiar with garden fixtures like wind chimes and solar path lights. In this project, Jason Poel Smith combines these two elements and teaches you how to make wind-activated hanging lights. These DIY garden decorations light up and flicker like fireflies whenever the wind blows. The stronger the wind, the more active they are. 

Like any decoration, it don't need to be confined to a garden or back yard. They can also light up the edge of your roof or your porch. You can even bring them in doors and set them across from your A/C vent.
