>These are Baby Food Jars?

>With the cool days upon us I find myself looking for interesting ways to spend my down time (I’m not much of a TV watcher). I was recently browsing through Natural Home Magazine and found this fabulous project. This chandelier is crafted from humble materials. Aside from a few nuts and bolts, everything was either salvaged or recycled. This is my kind of project! They used votive candles; however I would use Sally Lee tealight candles which come in an acrylic (and fully recyclable cup).

This chandelier has all the charm of medieval ironwork—but it comes from the recycling bin. Used baby-food jars, a few yards of twisted wire, a couple repurposed barrel hoops and a length of rusty chain are all it takes to spark images of exotic locales. Powered by votive candles, the chandelier crackles with energy without drawing a single watt.
