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.

  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.

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

Whipping Up Some Holiday Containers

After so many years of installing countless commercial and residential holiday containers, I could do it in my sleep.

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas.
