From garden fence...to cloche...to chandelier!September 3rd, 2009 in blog, projects
Well...what started as an outdoor chandelier, that wanted to be a "cloche" - that ultimately turned into what I intended (see, I am in control of my junk...even though it sometimes "says" otherwise - you guys understand, right???). (Here's the previous post: http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/15220/from-garden-fence-to-cloche-an-unexpected-project)
I wanted to share the finished project with you. My friends and I had seen something similar at an arts/crafts show last year, and of course we wanted to give it a try too...
As you can see the "cloche" has been suspended (with wire) in the center of the larger cylinder of garden fence. I then placed/wired a glass light fixture in the middle of it (so I could add water and use it for cut flowers). The smaller "half" circle on the outside cylinder of fence was bent up and wired a bit to hold the glasses for the tealights. I placed an artificial plant in the glass fixture.
The chandelier (candolier?) is hanging out on my deck, suspended from an old pulley. I've left it plain for the moment, but it could be embellished with some crystals (right, Janis?), or wrapped with other greenery, beaded garland, etc...
Hoping to have a girls' get-together soon, relax on the deck and enjoy the light of my chandelier - and see what kind of junk we can get ourselves into!!!
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
