PVC Light pole: Take 3" toilet flange for the base, 3" to a 2" reducer, 2" piece of pipe for what ever height you choose, a pole mount light fixture, a 3 wire extention cord (male plug on one end) and wire the other into the light. If you want to have a flag or sign on your light, you can use a 2" T with a 2" to a 1" reducer, then a short piece of 1" pipe with a cap. Before you paint it, use sandpaper to rough up the surface. We use tent stakes to anchor it to keep it from falling over.
