DIY Outdoor Garden Chandelier Round-up

I am eager to get home (on a red-eye flight tonight) and back to some projects and normal life. I have a patio project going on that should be nearing completion this week.  Once finished, I am excited to start adding features — like a beautiful garden chandelier. I have lots of great, inexpensive, DIY options that I have rounded up for your inspiration and my own.  My personal favorite for my particular project is the beaded dollar store option, what is yours?

Clothespin chandelier — while there is no instructions for this one, I think an infinite number of designs could be generated from just playing with the idea.   Found at Apartment Therapy.

And finally, this branch fixture seems easy enough to recreate and would be perfect over a garden table. From Remodelista.

  1. I have a lovely old wrought iron chandelier that uses candles for its light source.
    This past weekend it was so hot most of the candles melted over on themselves and fell to the table.
    I have clusters of tillandsias ( air plants) ties to the chandelier . Thank goodness they didn’t fall into the pile of warm melted wax below.

Quick! before the long days are truly gone for another six months.  Capture the beauty of seed heads, and grass tops, pods, twigs and leaves so you can savor them through the winter.
