For many years I have been wanting to learn how to create a garden chandelier. I search the thrift store but never found anything until my daughter took down her old chandelier which was defective. It was perfect one to make a garden chandelier. She was planning on throwing it out and I rushed to the garage to save it.
Supplies needed for the outdoor chandelier.
- Old Chandelier
- 5/ 4 1/2 inch planters
- Liquid nails
- Rustoleum paint & primer
Step 1: I took apart the chandelier by taking off the glass shade and the inside wires which I just to used a wire cutter. It was pretty easy to do. The shade holder was perfect for the garden planter.
Step 2: I cleaned off the planters, otherwise the glue won’t stick. I glued liquid nails on the bottom of the planters and placed them on top of the shade holder. Let dry for 24 hours.
Step 3: Spray paint them with the primer and paint from Rustoleum. I took several coats to achieve a complete coverage.
Step 4: Add the flowers.
We had a hook already on the front porch, so I hung my new rustic chandelier ! I was beyond happy how it came out. Its been a long time waiting and I finally made it. There is a slim water hose by the hook that is connected to the water. Hopefully it works otherwise will have to get that ladder and water it daily.
So now that you see my outdoor patio chandelier! I bet you will want to make one! I know I did when I saw one for the first time. Its is time consuming. But so pretty after its completed. So head out to your local thrift store. For more fun garden projects check out my garden stenciled sign perfect for the spring and summer month.
