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! Check this out:
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.
