Old Chandelier Makeover into Garden 'Candelier'

17K Views
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.

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

    I might do this with my wired chandelier...getting tire of the fake candle look.

      @B. Enne My chandelier was wired too, but very dated looking and had been forgotten about in the basement for years. This project gave it a new life and now it's hung on the back deck every summer.

    great idea, I've used my old chandeliers outdoors by adding sun powered lights to them so that they light up in the evening. When I saw your cups, I thought plants/flowers could look cute in them also.

      @Helene234 would look pretty as long as there is a hole for drainage and low enough to water. Fake plants, like ivy's, might do the trick
