Chandelier in My Tree DIY

7 Materials
2 Hours

I've always wanted a chandelier in my tree outdoors simply because it's so unexpected... and finally...I found the right chandelier to make this project!

The right one had to be cheap and this one was only $5 at a yard sale.

It's such an easy project--1st Remove the light bulbs and globes from the chandelier. Also remove the wiring that would normally be attaching to your ceiling.2nd Clean the chandelier with something like TSP cleaner.

3rd You will spray paint the chandelier (I love Rustoleum Sun Yellow) .4th Using a strong glue that holds up outdoors (Gorilla Glue is great) and glue the solar lights into the light bulb area. Toss the stakes that come with solar lights- you don't need them.

Then find someone that doesn't mind heights to go up the very tall ladder and attach a hook to the tree and hang the chandelier.

Admire it from a distance and wait impatiently for night so you can see how it looks. This was the hardest step for me, lol.

AND FINALLY it was night!I love seeing the chandelier in the tree. It doesn't give off a lot of light but is enough to walk out in our dark back yard and not walk into anything. Eventually I'll have my she-shed underneath it right next to the chicken coop!Once I got the right chandelier everything else was sitting around in the garage so really I only had the expense of the chandelier.
