DIY Wreath Chandelier and a Simple Winter Wonderland Gathering

Comments
This is a gathering I would have loved to be at… this perfect, snowy Montana setting was complete with a centerpiece wreath chandelier that took center stage, a giant fire to stand around while sipping fresh cocktails created with homemade syrups! This diy project and simple gathering with friends that Mariah did has me dreaming of a perfect snow fall… that we won’t get!

 

You’ll need (you can find everything at most craft and/or hardware stores): 1. Jewelry making tools: wire(18 gauge), wire cutters and wire wrapping pliers 2. A base wreath 3. Mini mason jars, big enough to fit tea light candles. 4. Rope or twine 5. S hook 6. I used greenery I found in the woods from a fallen tree but you can find greenery at most florists or sometimes grocery stores.

 

Instructions:
Cut one piece of wire and wrap around the top of the jar twisting the ends to secure. Then cut another piece of wire and form a handle that connects to the wire you wrapped around the jar. I used hot glue on the sides to keep the handle in place. 
Then tie 5 pieces of twine around the wreath spread evenly, these will hold the mason jars. Then cut 5 pieces of wire about 10″ long and with the wire wrapping tool, create two hooks on each end and attach to the mason jar handle and the twine. Make sure they hang low enough that the flame is not in danger of catching the greenery on fire! Then cut two pieces of rope, each piece tied to oposite ends of the wreath and criss crossed at the top. Slip on an S hook and it’s ready to hang! If anyone creates their own outdoor chandelier, we’d love to see it!
