Cheap LED garden light that doesn’t suck (12V DIY)

I don’t like those solar lights with low brightness and cheap materials that fade within few weeks. So I made my own LED garden lights to use in my drive way and backyard that are modern, elegant and cheap to make. Powered by 12V controlled from my alarm system which turns it on automatically at given hour. Each light has body made of aluminum with milky plastic front glass for better light distribution, 15cm of cool white LED strip (same as in my other lamps so it fits and my whole installation is consistent with each other), two screws as an ground anchor and that’s it. Parts for those lights cost about $3/piece.

Where did you buy the aluminum channel and frosted plastic?

Did you put anything to cover/cap the open top (once installed) of the channel?

Great project! Thanks for sharing.
