I think my favorite chandelier upcycle I've seen is making it into an outdoor solar light by replace the bubs with little solar lights. https://www.hometalk.com/20097298/upcycle-an-outdated-chandelier-to-a-solar-chandelier
Here are some ideas for you: http://dishfunctionaldesigns.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-upcycled-chandelier.html
You could fit cups and saucers into the lighting points and add plants and hang either inside or outside. Air plants don't need watering and cactus - very little. enjoy!
Here is one that I redid with solar lights... http://www.recreateddesigns.com/2016/07/dump-store-chandelier/
I also have a book coming out in the next two weeks and I redid this larger one with birdhouses.... Hope one of them help with some ideas.
Hi! maybe this will help
You could turn into a bird feeder or planters and hang outdoors. My sister added candles to one and used when my niece got married and now has it hanging from a tree in her yard.
I love the way they look hung outside in a garden and instead of bulbs, they have candles placed in the sockets. If you use battery operated pillar candles with timers, they will go on every night at the same time and light up your garden....
Old chandeliers are always in demand before Halloween time when folks are creating spooky porch and yard displays.
you can use it as a bird feeder, an outdoor candle holder and here are more ideas
Can you make it a big candle holder and hang outside ,or put small pots and plant ivy and let it grow on the lite.
There are many projects you can use an old chandelier for, you could add solar lights, tea lights, or candles. Remove the old wiring and replace with one of the above.
