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.

    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
