I am so happy to be back for this month’s Upcycle challenge.

You all know how much I love to update thrift store finds!

It really is so fun to see what all the other bloggers come up with.  

Creativity at its finest. A big thank you to Amanda from The Kolb Corner for organizing this great monthly challenge.

I have been focusing on outdoor projects and wasn’t quite sure what I was going to share until I found this wrought iron candle holder at a yard sale for $3.

At first I thought I would spray paint it, but honestly the black was perfect for what I had in mind.

I made a DIY Chandelier planter!

Here is the finished project:

This was so easy to make. All I did was pick up 4 solar lights from The Dollar Tree and was thrilled when they fit perfectly in the candle arms.

I just took them off the stakes and used E6000 to glue them to the holder.

I thought it looked a little plain and was going to add some beading or something to decorate it further.

But when I went to my craft closet to look for something, I saw this old mason jar canning rack.

I had one of those lightbulb moments. I checked to see if it fit in the base of the holder and sure enough it was perfect.

Don’t you love when that happens?

I cut some coco liner to fit in the rack and added these beautiful plants.

I can’t wait till they fill in. I think it will really look pretty then.

I hung it from a shepherd’s hook by my front walkway to give us some natural light at night.

I am so happy with how this DIY Chandelier Planter turned out.

The best part-as I had everything but the solar lights-this baby only cost $10.

Keep your eye out for old chandeliers or candle holders at your next yard sale!

You could definitely paint it a fun color to match your decor.
