Old Chandelier Makeover into Garden 'Candelier'

Last week I pulled a rather sad looking chandelier out of my basement, where it has been for about 15 years. It was given to me long before that, but I never hung it anywhere. I decided that its time for a makeover had finally come, so I gave it a new life as a garden candelier.

    Thanks! It looks fabulous at night, but photos didn't do it justice so I haven't added any. I hope to try again with a different camera to see how that works. I appreciate the comment!

    Very pretty Tuula. I have a friend that did something similar only alternated tea cups and little bird houses putting birdseed in the cups.

    Thanks Becky! There are so many fabulous things that can be done to makeover old and outdated chandeliers. I hope to get my hands on a few more in the future so I can try out some other ideas I have. Thanks for the comment.

    Great idea...instead of "cups" use small clear juice glasses (or clear custard cups) so that the candles show at night...

    Thanks for your comments everyone. The glass in the middle was from the original chandelier. It just needed a good cleaning. I used espresso cups because they can take the heat of the tea lights. Thanks so much. I really appreciate your interest.

    Those cups are a great idea, they could be used as a bird feeder instead of candle holders...Love the idea!!!
