The second set of solar lights that were damaged were the type of lights that were attached by a thin wire; then were attached to small solar panel grid. The squirrel ate the cord and severed one of the globe lights. I cut the cords on the stakes and painted each individual globe stake with a pinkish metallic paint. I decided to use these globes as hose guides, instead of throwing them out.
The solar panel grid I plan to reuse on another project. Don't throw out these broken items reuse and re purpose them . There are many craft blogs that can inspire the imagination; keep it out of the landfills.
