DIY Repurposed Teapot Chandelier


This garden art chandelier is a repurposed project made from an old dining room light fixture, and a teapot and cups. I’ll give you the basic how-to information.

There’s also an upcycled DIY Garden Chandelier tutorial here.

Make this wonderful garden art chandelier using an old light fixture, teapot, and ceramic mugs. Great way to repurpose unwanted household items.

Dawn, who is an Empress of Dirt Facebook friend, made this wonderful project. It’s actually a working chandelier used in a kitchen! It would look great outdoors as well.

To Make A Chandelier Like This

  • You’ll need an old chandelier to use as the base.
  • Pick paints suitable for the various surfaces and paint everything before you assemble it. Spray paints work very well on metals and many ceramics.
  • Holes are drilled in the cups and saucers to fit them around the lightbulb holders.
  • The hanging chain is threaded through a hole in the base of the teapot.
  • Alternately, if you don’t want a working chandelier, you could simply attach the cups and saucers together with a good silicone adhesive instead of drilling holes in them.

Considerations

  • Before you commit to using particular dishes, you may want to test out how easy they are to drill.
  • Some ceramics are very stubborn and it will take ages  (hours) to drill holes in them, some will break (boo), and others drill quite readily (within minutes with the right drill bit–use a diamond drill bit). You just have to test them out.
