Making A Solar Outdoor Chandelier

Vote for this contest contender!

I found this great shabby chic chandelier at Goodwill. I have been on a search for one for a while. Because I wanted to do this on a budget, I had to wait until there was one that would work for my craft. I love the look, and it will go well with my outdoor space. With a little paint and and solar lights this will become a functional and decorative piece for my outdoor garden.

Total Time: 3 hours

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Wipe down chandelier to make free of dust and dirt.
  2. Because I wanted color on this all white fixture, I choose to bring the flower and leaf details out. With craft paints I painted out the roses a pink color, and also painted the leaves(green).

  4. While that dried, I purchased 3 outdoor lights that work perfectly inside of the candle stick holders. I removed the caps from the stems, and taped off the light covers on top and painted the caps to match the flowers. Allow to dry.
  5. With the light caps placed back unto the cups, outdoor adhesive was used around the base of the light and then it was inserted into the candle holder of the chandelier. Allow to dry.

  7. Spray protectant spray on the newly painted areas. Allow to dry. Ready to install in your garden.
