Material I used for this project:

  • Candle Holders   (Amazon)

Got a question about this project?

    • They are pretty but no, I couldn't because they would have been hanging upside down.

    • Try putting them on opposed with the hooks for using for fishing lines. You can get different sizes & colors. You can spray paint to match, if you want them back on. They are pretty as is, would give out more sparkle with them on. I wish I have my stuff here in Ohio with me because I just did a light for back hall light. The beads would look good on it. Good luck on your stuff.
    • Get beads that create prisms for added beauty and kids love the rainbows that are made by magic!!
    • They are really Pretty by the way! I'm gonna have to make some Thanks for sharing!! 💜
    • Thank you. I am really satisfied with the clean look without the beads, it sets off the plank walls in the kitchen really well. But great idea with the prism beads Rita.

      Exactly Sandra, I would have liked to keep the crystals on it also but just wasn't possible with these holders.

      That was the hard part. I tried using a hole drill but the metal was just too hard. I drilled a really small hole with a metal bit then used metal Cutters and just chipped away till it was the right size. It was not a pretty sight but it worked.

    The mounting would be my concern... like what do I need to keep the light inside the holder?

    • Bj Moore

      I used the old hardware from the red globes. After you remove the bulb, remove the plastic nut that holds the globe. I got the size of the hole required off of the nut. The white plastic nut is in picture 4.
