I know you have seen those gorgeous solar chandeliers that you can hang on your deck or patio. If you’ve ever priced them, you also know that they’re not cheap. I saw one that cost more than $150, which is why I love this DIY version.
You can make your own DIY solar chandelier using an old chandelier and a few Dollar Store supplies!
What You Need For A DIY Solar Chandelier
To make this DIY solar light for the garden, you need an old chandelier. I found one really cheap at a local thrift store, so if you don’t have one on hand, I would check out Goodwill or other thrift stores in your area. I got mine for around $5.
You also need some cheap solar lights, and you can get these at the Dollar Store for just a few dollars for the set. Aside from that, just a few basic craft supplies and you have everything you need to make your own solar chandelier for the garden!
How Does Your DIY Solar Chandelier Work?
Solar lights work with power from the sun, so once you have your solar chandelier put together, you just let the solar lights charge up in the sunlight and the chandelier will light up your garden area well into the night.
This is the perfect repurposing project for summer! You’ll enjoy nights outside with light without worrying about running up your electric bill. And this chandelier is just gorgeous when it is finished.

What Other DIY Solar Crafts Can You Make?
I love solar crafts. Not only are these pretty easy DIYs, but solar power is such a wonderful thing. I’ve shown you a few ways in the past to repurpose items into your own solar-powered crafts, like this DIY solar powered nightlight.
