This is kind of a " how to" blog entry.
I had seen Sue and Ki, from the now defunked Country Home magazine, put together a very cool garden chandelier ... I copied their design. Using some, fresh from the curbside, vintage garden wire... I bent it into a circle, adjoined the ends (by bending the wire onto itself) then attached vintage telephone insulators to the sides. Simple process and it only took about 30 minutes.
I hung chain from it and in the tall branch of my very old apple tree, I screwed an eye hook and pully. I ran the cloths line rope from the chandelier, through the pully and down to a knot on the tree. An old broken branch know serves as a tie
I have knotted several areas so that I can take it down to place tea lights inside and light them for a pretty glow in my outdoor room.
In the winter i take it down and place a squirrel proof feeder on the rope ( we always leave 1 chain link for ease of switching the items we hang).
The Birds love it in the winter and we love it Spring, Summer and Fall.
try it... it is such a fun thing to do!
