DIY: Gazebo Chandelier

18 Feb

IMAG3773

Last summer I made this chandelier to add a little sparkle and summer charm under my Gazebo. There’s nothing like sitting out on a nice warm sunny day in the evening and being able to have candles lit up in the night sky with a drink in hand and relax. This chandelier gives a cozy feel inside the Gazebo and turns the outdoor living space into a whole other extended room.

Materials:

Step 1: Prime Paint Wood

Step 2: I drilled holes into the wood. Then Painted the wood Dark Brown. After the Paint was dried I inserted the nuts and bolts to hold the chain.

Step 3: Next I inserted 10 hook rings into the wood piece to hang the mason jars and then I prepared the mason Jars with twine to hang from the hooks.

Step 4: I added the D-ring to the chain and hoisted the chandelier up and placed it on the hook. Afterward I added the Mason Jars to the hooks and set the candles inside and finished this project in an afternoon.

    That is really clever! I like the idea of the outdoor room. I’m hoping to upgrade our outdoor spaces this spring/summer. Thank you for supplying some inspiration!

    So this is a cool idea, so cool in fact that I am making it this weekend; question though.
    Do you need to take the whole thing down every time you use it to blow the candles out or did you use solar or battery candles in which case you would still have to bring it down to turn them off.
