This frosted embossed glass globe came from a thrift store (of course). I hot glued on the glass bead fringe and gimp. The candle cups are vintage gelatin molds with short pieces of broom handle nailed to the bottoms and then stuck into the sockets. Scrapbook paper covers the candle covers.

When the wiring went bad, I converted this old 4 light floor lamp into a non-electric low light lamp for my porch. The glass shade rests on an oil lamp chimney screwed into the center fixture, and the 3 candlestick fixtures have battery flicker candles in the tin cups. Stick-on battery LED lights are attached inside the shade.
