DIY Chandelier Planter

Chandelier Planter

A college friend of mine, Megan, showed me this chandelier planter that she created and I absolutely loved it.  She gave me permission to share her work of art with you and was kind enough to write out how she did it.  I’ll turn it over to her now.

I used an old brass chandelier that was laying around our basement.  I had my husband remove the electrical wiring and elements.  Then I glued a terra cotta saucer and pot to each other, and on each of the chandelier’s arms. I used Elmer’s Pro-Bond Advanced Glue. It’s supposed to work on any material, and it worked for my terra-cotta to metal combo!  I hung the chandelier when dry and painted with a paint/primer combo (Valspar Tropical Oasis). I finished mine with a clear enamel spray paint because I had some left over from another project, but I think a specific sealant spray would have been better. Super easy! I only had to pay for the pots, which are pretty cheap at Lowe’s, and a can of spray paint!

There you have it folks!  An easy, cost-effective way to add a little DIY charm to your home.

If you have a creative party, recipe, or DIY and would like to be featured on Embracing Creativity we would love to see it!  You can submit your creativeness here.
