Sticks and Stones: Outdoor Mason Jar Chandelier

I would love to have Dinah’s mind. When she sees a large stick in her back yard, she doesn’t think, “Huh. A stick to clean up.” Instead, she sees a stick and immediately decides to make an outdoor mason jar chandelier with it! She’s showing us how she did it at DIY Inspired.

Dinah used lengths of twine to wrap under the lips of the jars and to tie the jars to the stick. She also used doubled-up twine to hang the stick from the patio over her outdoor dining table. Small pebbles fill each jar, and Dinah placed a tea light in each one. I love how this looks in the day and in the night!

White Twig Chandelier

All of you junkers are probably no stranger to the fabulous recreations of Donna from Funky Junk Interiors. She had this white chandelier that had been taking up residence in her garage for two years.

Yes, it was cute before. Nothing that really grabs you attention… but cute enough. Donna was inspired to take its cuteness to whole new level with some grapevine and willow branches from her yard. Now, that is an eye-catching chandy that demands a second look!
