    Where can I buy chandeliers planters? Just the chandelier only?

      Try recycle stores or sometimes thrift stores carry old chandeliers. You may have to dismantle the electrical but it is really easy with a pair of small wire cutters and a pair of pliers. I have found a couple at yard sales, too.

      Check a local Habitat for Humanity store https://www.habitat.org/, or any thrift-store. It's very easy to find them.

    I noticed your chandelier has what looks like bolts atop the discs. After removing the long screws that held the candle, upside down cup and disc in place , I now have no way of holding the disc on the chandelier. Will the epoxy harden and hold it solidly or do I have to find a screw or bolt that will fit the arm.
    Can I simply glue the disc.
    Loved the finished project, hope mine works as well.
    Thanks,
    MD

      Hi MD. Follow the link to my original blog post above...mine only had candles on the disc....so the bolt things were already there (I just used wire cutters to remove the parts under the candle covers). I don't know that even epoxy will hold the pots on there...not with being outdoor (weather/elements) and water (even if it's waterproof). I really think it's going to need some type of screw or bolt to really make sure it's secure since that's where the pots will rest. Mine finally after 4 years bit the dust...the epoxied pots came off (survived that long outdoors in PA!) . I love it so much I'll be re-doing it! Good luck. Hope that helps!

      Thank you. I am going to have to figure out something to hold the discs in place. Maybe small dowels driven into the screw part on the arms then the discs glued on over the dowels. The chandelier was only $2.00 so not out much for that. Love it so much I am determined to make one or two.

    Now I know what to do when I replace my old chandelier in the dining room--thanks for the inspiration!
