Garden

Chandelier

This is another original of mine. I finished putting together a pavers patio in the backyard. Then made a Pergola. I wanted a light fixture to go above the table. this is such a easy, inexpensive way to get beautiful nighttime lighting outside. All I needed was:

Wire wreath-Dollar Tree
Icicle lights- Walmart
Chain (purchased at home improvement store)
4 smaller hooks (to connect chains to wire wreath)
1 larger hook (to connect to hook on ceiling, and other end of hook to put the 4 strands of chains on.
Rustoleum White Spray Paint- Walmart
Sparkly beads (optional)
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $15.00 Difficulty: Easy

t looks going up chains

  • This is how it looks with chains and up top!
    • upcycled christmas lights, crafts, lighting
    I then added some pretty sparkly silver beads. Shine so pretty even during the during the day! There you go….sounds complicated…but it isn’t, really!!!! I love how this looks in my pergola!
    • upcycled christmas lights, crafts, lighting
    Seriously Awesome at night….and sparkles so much!

    Materials I used for this project:

Christmas Icicle Lights   (Walmart)

Beads (for sparkle)  and the Wire Wreath   (Craft Store)

      1. Erm I could not figure out how to sign up for the giveaway. Is there a link I can access for it? Also I doubt I can do justice to making something fast enough for the 17th. Got much on my plate, what with setting up home and writing. By sponsor you mean sending something DIY to you, is it not? xx

      2. I am hosting a giveaway celebrating 1 yr in august I’ve had this site. I want to give back to the community. I have been collecting sponsors to give a gift certificate to their store/ or another store, in return they get the pic of their gift and link to their site. you’ll receive great exposure over 5,000 views almost everyday. If you want to sponsor let me know. It is not a requirement.

      4. Linda, remember we spoke about this on email where I chewed on your brains about cookbooks and the like? I realised that I was too fatheaded to figure this out. I mean I do not have a store so… 🙂 xx

I was going to hang mason jar tealights but this is better and have every supply! How did you attach the beads though ..did you do strings of them? I cant quite tell in the pics..great post! Thanks! Newbie blogger bout to get blog up in next few days..hope to become friends!

    1. The beads were a last minute thing. What i did was I wrapped a little wire (you could use string also,) around the top bead with about a inch left for wrapping around chandelier.

      1. You sure will get one! And of the whole garden set up! been of working making each little item from twigs and bark and we..lol love nature so most of my items are made from nature..and we are all working on a kindness rock garden in our community too leaving the painted stones not only in garden in town but all over town on hiking trails in parks etc..been very busy! However, now taking break to get blog up! Another idea is to use a small hula hoop too!

      2. That’s an awesome idea, letting random people see your rocks…great idea. I liked my idea better than hula hoop because the wire wreath has larger circle, medium, then small. so I could wrap not only the outside but inside too on the other circles. You can purchase these in smaller sizes at the Dollar Tree….Walmart is where I purchased mine.

      2. Ohhh….how cute!!! Too bad you didn’t have a little Tinkerbell figure you can hang on a invisible thread in the center…wow that would be awesome! I have a friend who has a 5 year old diva…she acts like she’s a teen already….you should see her with a microphone all dolled up, singing her heart out….another American Idol in the making. Children are just so awesome. They are truly a gift from God.

  3. Oh, Kelley…that’s gorgeous! 😍 Sadly the only outlet on our patio is too far away…I think the orange extension cord would take away from the romantic effect 😉
    The scarf for your giveaway is almost finished and ready to go on it’s journey to you 🤗

    1. No, you hide the cord underground a few inches. I put mine in a pvc pipe when I buried it. This kept the wire out of all the elements. PVC is really inexpensive. Make sure it’s wide enough to fit the ends of the extension cord.
      Now about the giveaway. Please send me a pic of your beautiful scarf, and if you have a bus. card, put that in the pic with your scarf. I just found out I have to have surgery on the 14th! This giveaway will help keep me horizontal.

      1. Oh honey…I’m so sorry to hear that 😕 I hope it’s nothing serious!
        Thank you for the tip with the pipe. While our patio-between outlet and table- is cement, my daughter’s isn’t, so she’ll definitely follow your advice. 😁
        I’ll finish the scarf over the weekend, and will send you a picture on Monday at the latest.
        Have a good weekend 💕

    1. Mine was clear on the other side of the house. I had to run 2 extension cords underground to the outlet. I covered the cord in the ground with pvc, so it was safe and didn’t corrode.

  4. You made my day with this post. I left my beautiful wrought iron chandelier that hung on my back porch at my old house and not on purpose. I could not hang it on my patio ceiling here because it would just be to heavy, but I could have hung it in one of my trees. I have been racking my brain trying to figure out something and I came up with a very similar idea, but after seeing yours this is what I want to do. I won’t get it done this season, but it will be a winter project.
    Thank you, thank you.

    1. I am so glad Patty that you saw this post. It is a easy, fun project. It looks beautiful at night. I have the cool led icicles. You don’t need a long one, unless you want lights somewhere else. You can go online at
