Attach Sisal Rope

Thread each strand of sisal rope through each of the four holes drilled into the edges of the frame. Next, create thick knots to securely keep the rope tied to the bottom of the chandelier. Note: The opposite ends of each strand of rope will be tied together to the eye hook which will be attached to the ceiling.

Add C-Hooks for Votives

Use drill to add 10 pre-drilled pilot holes along bottom side of chandelier frame facing downward toward table. Tip: Be sure to space these out evenly for a more balanced look.

Add Wire to Mason Jars

Create hanging handles atop each Mason jar with galvanized wire. To do this, wrap the perimeter of the Mason jar once or twice with wire, tie into place, then add an additional wire up and over the top of the jar.
