Have you made your own yard lighting?

I’m trying to find parts and ideas for making my own yard lights. It seems that there’s not much [affordable] on the market that throws a lot of light at low power consumption. I’m really dissapointed in the solar yard lights as they cast almost no light, and seem to be for accent than actual usable light.
Have you seen any good ideas? I will probably use cree led’s for the project, and I haven’t decided between 1 watt or 3 watt. I also don’t know if the heat would dissipate in an enclosed container. And how should I drive them? 4 volt supply? 12 volt supply and step down the voltage in each light?
