If you have an old hanging tomato planter, take the plastic off and use only the circle and the wire attached to it. This will be our chandelier base. Cut the chicken wire to desired size and attach to the circle with little wires.

Attach a wire to the top of the 4 clothe hanger pieces and attach the whole thing to the tomato planter hanger at the top part, where all the wires come together. Attach the magnetic chandelier crystals to your bent clothe hanger wires. Break your wooden branch (-es) to the right size and lay it on to the chicken wire. Glue some moss on to it and a little bird.

Now we have to attach the tea lights, to make it a real chandelier. *You may use hot glue first, but it actually melts and the tea light falls*. So we will use wire.

Cut some wire (approx. as long as your index finger). Punch it through the metal of the tea light, in from one side, out to the opposite side. Then bend it back and punch it through in the opposite direction into the tea light and out. . Bend it down 90 degrees. Sit your tea light on the chicken wire of the chandelier and attach it with a little wire on the bottom.{found on}
