A Lovely Solar Chandelier Failure
If you ever get on Pinterest I am sure you have seen the beautiful DIY solar chandeliers. I wanted one but didn’t know what I’d do with one.
Until… we bought a hot tub last summer. I then had the perfect use for one. What could be more romantic than sitting in the hot tub with a cool drink, watching the stars above by the light of a chandelier?

This chandelier was in Mr. Menace’s childhood home. It’s rather plain, but absolutely perfect for my outdoor light! I removed the white shades and spray painted it the same blue as my outdoor chairs, which is Rustoleum Spa Blue.
I then hot glued solar lights on it. I used hot glue because I thought I didn’t want them to be permanent. My thinking was that the cheap lights would probably only last a year or so, and then they would need to be replaced. So I thought with hot glue they would be easy to pop off and glue a new one in as needed.
Then I hung it on the side of the deck just above the hot tub. How elegant it looked! And it worked splendidly!
Until the lights started falling off.
So. I have some construction adhesive that will hold those suckers in…. but do I really want them that secure? If you have done this craft, what type of glue did you use?
UPDATE: I did get this figured out! See the updated project HERE!
