DIY Solar Light Chandelier

Picked up this nice glass, but totally useless-as-an-electrical-light, chandelier from our local dump shop ($5).
Pulled out all the wiring and fixed up the ends. Found some glass crystals (ex-Xmas stock, only $3 for 8 of them) and attached them to give some sparkle and charm, and then added solar lights ($1 each) using hot glue to keep them in place.
Now I have a gorgeous recycled garden ornament that lights up the path of a night, and all for only $14.00.
Totally stoked!!
