DIY Solar Flag Pole :)

I was looking around on Pinterest for some ideas on a solar lamp post and found what I wanted but.....after making it, I didn't like the way it looked so I decided to do my own thing with it and made it into a garden flag pole. I am very happy with how it turned out and have actually had a couple of people ask me to make them one also

Great idea

How do you keep it standing up in the wind? I use a 4ft piece of rebar in the ground that the pole slides over.... It is for my flagpole, but love the idea of the solar lamp on top!
