Many people know I love thrift stores and solar lights. Put them together and I can create some great things for my yard. Do you have an old chandelier you don’t know what to do with? I picked up a few from thrift stores, Facebook Marketplace, and Nextdoor.com, and I’ll show you How To Make An Outdoor Solar Chandelier
Here’s the first chandelier. I started by removing the light bulbs and the glass fixture pieces.
I then took off all of the pieces I wouldn’t need, like the attachment to the ceiling. I also cut the wire off the top and pulled it out. You can decide if you want to keep the chain or not depending on where you’re putting it.
Next I squeezed silicone into each of the light sockets. This will hold the solar light into place.
I pulled the bases or stems off of 8 solar lights that I got at Walmart.
I placed the solar light heads into the silicone in the light sockets.
I let the silicone dry over night.
Next, decide where you want to place it – porch, gazebo, hanging from a tree, etc. With indirect sunlight solar lights will run a couple hours, and with direct sunlight they’ll run several.
