    This is so pretty, Tina! Do you put candles in them? I have seen some folks use them for birdfeeders too!

    I love this, (since I have an affection for teapots and teacups) I would like to know if this is a candle or electric chandelier. So pretty.

    You could hang it outdoors and place tea light candles or flame-less tea lights in that up-cycle.

    Thank you for the lovely comments. It is for the outdoors and is not electric. Happy Hunting. I bought the candle chandelier at a church rummage sale. I do put tea light candles in them. Also have used the tops of the outdoor solar lights. I won't do

    I saw a number of these is a cute little shop in Rome, Italy, but they also drilled a hole through the center for a teapot! They were featured in all kinds of patterns. Love it!

    Glad you all enjoyed my chandelier. With the AZ heat, the cups have been glued a number of times. Gorilla glue has been the best.
