This garden chandelier adds the perfect touch to create an enchanting garden scene inside or out.

I love the idea of a garden party, don’t you!? I have images of fresh flowers, the fragrance of jasmine and gardenia wafting through the air. Warm breezes and sweet tea. Friends gathered and easy conversation. Can’t you just picture it? This was the motivation behind creating this hanging garden chandelier.

I wanted to set the stage for a picturesque garden party. And the bonus that I wasn’t even expecting? The versatility of this chandelier. If the weather isn’t cooperating or if it rains on your party this project will help you bring the garden feel inside. I’m going to show you different ways to use your hanging garden chandelier so you can enjoy that same inviting summer garden party setting inside or out all year long. This is just one of many DIY outdoor decorating ideas.

How to Create Your Garden Chandelier

Step 1

First, cut three strands of ribbon or twine making sure you have plenty of length so you can hang from a variety of locations (estimate longer than you need because you can always cut the excess).

Step 2

Next, tie each strand to the wreath spacing evenly around the wreath.

Step 3

Thirdly, once the three strands are attached draw them up above the wreath (as if you were going to hang it) and gather them together about 1-2 feet above the wreath (depending on the look you want) and make a single knot.

Step 4: Faux Flowers

Next, decorate the wreath using your faux flowers and faux greens. I popped off small buds from faux stems. I cut small pieces of greens with wire cutters. Some pieces I was able to stick into the woven grapevine and get it to stay on their own. With other pieces I had to add a bit of hot glue to attach securely. In the end I added hot glue to most pieces once I had everything where I wanted it just to be sure.

Step 5: Decorating

The decorating is the fun part and also the part where you can feel free to be the most creative. There is no right way to do this. You can add as much or as few flowers as you want. I wanted to keep the color palette to a simple pink monotone look but feel free to add as many colors as you want. It’s your party. I decided to leave some of the grapevine wreath showing to keep a more rustic, natural look to my chandelier and allow the pink flowers and pink ribbon to really pop against the neutral background.

Some additional ideas to consider when decorating your garden chandelier:

  • How high will your chandelier be? Will people be able to see the top or only the bottom? You may want to concentrate more decor on the sides and bottom in that case.
  • Add hanging flowers or vines to drape down off the edges for more drama.
  • Add other details like crystals to catch the light and add some extra sparkle.
  • Instead of short tea lights you could add taller pillar candles.
  • Add your own touches of whimsy, maybe a little faux bird or two, or whatever you want just to make it uniquely your own.

Step 6: Adding Tea Lights

When I was satisfied with the decor I added the small metal tea light holders. I removed the candles from the tea light tins and attached these to the top of the wreath using hot glue. I spaced the three tea light holders evenly in between where I had tied the ribbon. Once the tea light holders were secure, I was able to simply “sit” the flower petal votives on top. There is no need to secure these. They should be able to rest here without any problem.

Whether it’s for every day or a special occasion this beautiful garden chandelier sets a special mood. As you can see in the pictures, I haven’t even set a table.

More Ideas for Any Season

Now that you see how fun and easy these are, I hope you are excited to create one or more yourself. While these are perfect for spring and summer, I also started imagining a fall version. Replace the pink ribbon with twine, raffia or fall-colored ribbon, use fall colors and elements and you have a great new chandelier option to carry you through the seasons, limited only by your imagination. How about a Christmas version? Whatever your reason or season the versatility of this project makes it ideal for any occasion.

Have fun and send us pictures of your creations. It’s possible we will include yours in an update of this post.
