Create a solar chandelier for your garden

I stopped at my favorite Goodwill store the other day and found a cute, broken chandelier, and instantly knew what I wanted to do with it.  I have been wanting an outdoor solar chandelier for a long time, I had already purchased the lights at the dollar store, but didn’t see a light that I thought would fit my style.  Until now !!


I started working on it immediately, I stripped out the electrical wires and lights and cleaned up the metal and porcelain.  I glued the tops of the solar lights to the fixtures and hung it from a branch over a table I have under a tree.  I couldn’t wait until it turned dark !


In the dark..ch2

This little broken ugly old chandelier has found new purpose and adds a romantic and beautiful addition to my eclectic backyard.  This is one of my favorite repurpose projects and all for around 10 dollars.  Did I mention, I love it !!

    1. Thanks, I have been looking for a broken one for month 🙂 Make sure to post your pictures when you make one.

    1. Thank you, it was so much fun to make 🙂 I love your fresh veggies, is that cauliflower? I am growing it for the first time this year, and they said if I didn’t cover it, it would be purple. I like purple !!

      1. Thank you, I won’t cover it !! I can’t wait, will make a beautiful vegetable platter 🙂

    1. Thank you, I love sitting on my back porch at night and looking at solar lights. It is a bit bent, but I don’t care 🙂

      1. I wouldn’t either. I’m not much of a chandelier person but my dil loves them so I sent her the link so she can create her own oasis when she finds the perfect one.
