Wire Basket Turned Outdoor Chandelier

I spotted this project idea on apartment therapy. Such a simple project & it looks so elegant.

I picked up an old milk bottle holder last summer (kinda like the one pictured below)at Goodwill & it's been on a table outside holding plant clippings for a while now. It's much too nice to be hidden so I'll put this project on my wish list.

All you need for this project is a wire basket or (milk bottle holder), a few jam jars or mason jars, pretty crystals, chain or metal planter hooks. Pick out a wire basket with a handle and a flat base. (I spot them all the time at Homegoods) It's great to find one designed to hold glassware or small pots ― the built-in partitions will hold your jars in place. Then hang crystals from the base and top; for a real Cinderella look, loop two strands of glass beads across the bottom and attach chain (found in many colors at homedepot). Attach your chandelier to a patio roof or tree with a length of matching chain or a metal plant hanger. When you're seated, it should float just above eye level. Place tea lights or votives in the jars, light the candles, and enjoy the glow!

If you aren't up for the project just buy this one via Farmhouse. only 59.00. So pretty dressed up for every season.
