ChandelierMaterials

  1. Vine Wreath of desired size
  2. Heavy duty metal twine
  3. 3 strands of outdoor lights
  4. 1-2 safety hooks

We picked up this grape vine wreath at the local craft store for $17.99, the twine for $6.99 and each set of Target Room Essentials Outdoor Light Strands for $11.99 each. Safety hooks can be found at your local hardware store for under $5.

 

Step 1

Cut two lengths of twine that will connect cross ways over your wreath, and meet in the center.

Step 3

Once you’ve wrapped all three light strands, you’re ready to hang the chandelier!

IMPORTANT: Be sure that your mounting hook is secure and can support the weight of your chandelier. A latching safety hook should be used to ensure that the chandelier is securely mounted. Be sure to mount the chandelier so that it is not directly over the hot tub.

 

Step 4

Enjoy! Congratulations, you’ve made a beautiful inexpensive outdoor lighting feature sure to impress!
