DIY Summer Lights

When we got married 8 years ago, my sister-in-law gave us a large hurricane filled potpourri (Yankee Candle), shells, small starfish and pale green and frosted white sea glass.  It's lovely and is still slightly fragranced.  I bring it out in the summer but few people have commented on it because it sits on a small bureau at the bottom of our staircase where it's rather dark.
This year, I grabbed a battery-powered set of tiny LED lights that go on an off with a built-in timer and poured the potpourri/shell mixture around them.
I think the effect is soft and romantic and I plan to take it out to the patio when we entertain in the evening. After my initial purchase of the lights at Christmas, the project cost me nothing.  What can you come up with using what you have around the house?
