diy rope chandelier

I just love bringing indoor luxuries and comforts outdoors during the summer months.  I have had the idea in my head for a while to create an outdoor chandelier from globe lights and created this super simple DIY using just a few things that you could get at your local shops.  Just a string of globe lights, a hula hoop, and some rope is all you need to get a gorgeous chandelier out onto your patio.

Where ever you have an extension cord, you could place this light fixture, the sky is (literally) the limit. Here is how I made it…

ONE wrap a hula hoop with your string lights, ensuring that they’re equally spaced and all facing in the same direction.  TWO use fine gauge wire to secure the beginning and end of the string lights.  THREE wrap the hula hoop and light cord with rope. FOUR create a long loop with the excess rope and lights from which to hang the fixture.
