How to Make a Garden Chandelier | Midwest Living Industrial dishwasher basket used, Step 1: Gather materials You’ll need 12 quart-size canning jars along with 12 votive candles; a bag of sheet moss; a 6-inch-wide flowerpot without a drainage hole; four 3-foot lengths of link chain; 4 small threaded chain connectors along with 1 large one; 2 feet of heavy-duty rope; a tray, pan or basket that’s about 2 feet in diameter; and a 5-pound bag of birdseed.
I decided to make my own solar powered garden lights using things found at the Dollar Tree.

I though the pattern on the jars would give off pretty reflection on the trees. They remind me of vintage salt and pepper shakers.
