Pendant Lighting

Refurbished candle holders into pendant globes.

Typical globe replacements run around $20 each.

I ordered 3 candle holders under $8 each.

Removed the faux diamonds and flipped it over to cut the new hole for the lights.

Inserted the old mounting hardware and ready for placement.


Materials I used for this project:

  • Candle Holders   (Amazon)

    The glass shades were....OK! But yours are AMAZING! Very creative! The glass shades would make better candle holders =:)

      They look like the crystals are held on with rings? Just reclip the rings on the other side after they're flipped?

      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?

      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.
