Light Up Your Backyard With These DIY Outdoor Chandeliers

Follow our guide for this repurposed DIY masterpiece, and you'll have a charming outdoor light fixture that will give you a great reason to enjoy your garden late into the evening.


This super-simple, open-air chandelier is the perfect way to illuminate your garden and patio. Sparkling lights strung around the patio is a great look, but match that string of lights to this repurposed DIY masterpiece and you have a charming outdoor light fixture that will give you a great reason to enjoy your garden late into the evening.

This project pictured above requires no electrical know-how and only a few materials: One strand of Edison-style light bulbs, one up-cycled waste basket and four to 10 black hair ties. This fixture works without the basket, but we think the extra layer provides just the right amount of rustic class.
