Attach Mason Jars to C-Hooks

Once the hanging handles of each Mason jar are complete and secure, place votives or battery-operated tea lights inside, suspending each Mason jar from the C-hooks.

Add Tree Cuttings to Frame

Gather fallen branches with greenery from the yard, or pick up bundles of Christmas tree trimmings from a local Christmas tree lot. Layer trimmings along the top of the chandelier frame, securing them in place with galvanized wire.

Hang Chandelier

Suspend chandelier to proper height above table. Attach heavy-duty eye hook into stud in ceiling. Next, thread two of the sisal rope strands through the hook, then knot them with the remaining two strands just along the outside of the hook. Stand back to ensure a level hang, then adjust as necessary. Light votives or turn on battery-operated tea lights.
