Some neightbors were throwing out the chandelier. Yucky with cigarette smoke. Cleaned it up; removed all the wiring.

I use battery operated tea lights in the little light globes.

Very nice idea!

I always see someone else's junk to have possibilities! I've made some pretty neat stuff out of someone else's discarded items. Even broken pots can serve a purpose if laid on their side or allow a cascading plant to flow from the broken area.

I also did an old chandelier, one solar under the pergola which the pergola is done in all bright tropical colors and one under a solid roof porch with tea cups and succulents, (this pic was under a glider but I have moved it. I put the saucers upside down so you could see the tea cup pattern instead of the bottom of the saucer. Got all of the chandeliers for nothing on our cities "sit it by the curb day".

Those chandeliers are absolutely adorable!!!! Oh my goodness, how creative!!! Did you drill holes in the bottom of each cup and saucer? And then attached the light socket? You mentioned solar .... so you just attached individual solar lights to each saucer? Where do you have the solar generator for each light?

That's beautiful, Orchidgal! I have a recycled hanging light I found in a thrift shop. I dolled it up for my tiny greenhouse that is like a small garden room, and it provides the perfect amount of light at night.

Thanks, I had made other one with stained glass over all the glass, and it cut down the light too much. This one is just right.
