Mounting a rear rack light without a rear rack - fabricating a mount - ideas anyone?

My Peugeot commuter project is coming along nicely. I have a cheap rear rack mounted dynamo light on it way but I plan not to mount a rear rack. I am happy with a light rucksack.

Has anyone fabbed a rear light mount for a light designed to go on the rear rack...? Just looking for ideas and inspiration at this point so any pictures would be great.

I s'pose the ideal mounting point will be the seatpost.

Thanks all in advance. I used the search funstion BTW without success so if anyone can point me to relevant thread I've missed, apologies and thanks too.
Cheers all

I saw a really nice mounting of a light on fender stays. With a rack mounted light, you have plenty of options.
