A Mason Jar Chandelier

Today I'm transforming this old chandelier.

I started this project with an old candle chandelier and a dollar store basket.

I painted them both with a couple coats of red spray paint.

I used a dab of Super Glue in all the right places and this basket is holding tightly!

I placed an electric candle in each arm of the chandelier then used Krazy Glue to adhere a Mason Jar onto each of the five candle holders.

The painted lid is now permanently attached to the candle holder and the jar unscrews from the lid to replace the lights.

I dropped a potted plant into the center of the chandelier and my project was finished!

A few American flags added to the patriotic look.

The perfect chandelier for the summer holidays!
