I didn’t have a single Easter holiday decoration in my stash, but I do now. The junk find light fixture is perfect for little displays and when Easter is over I see a white vignette….or maybe a solar light?
Hoppy Holiday Decoration
I found the hanging light fixture at a new thrift/junk shop. At least the shop is new to me. I bought the light fixture a few months ago and haven’t visited the shop again. I need to do that! I was perusing the junk shelves in my workshop looking for a small project to work on and came up with this.
The fixture cost $5 and I thought that was a good deal. I removed all of the electrical parts from the fixture using wire cutters and a screwdriver.
Then I washed the dirty glass globe and applied clear wax to the rusty top and chain. The wax keeps the rusty stuff from coming off on your hands and gives a little shine to the top.
The only thing left to do was fill the globe with colorful shredded paper and a few Easter decorations. Oh yeah, I put a small piece of cork in the bottom hole to keep the paper from falling out. I guess the hole once contained a finial? Not sure what they call the decorative piece on the bottom of lights……anyone?
Fun Holiday Decoration
Can you see this reclaimed light fixture holding a solar light? How about a nice little white house and picket fence on a bed of…….hum…not sure. Anyway, I’m going to do something else with it after Easter. I left the chain on it just so I can hang it if I want to.
You guys have a good day and I’ll see you tomorrow. Going to spend the day with one of my lovely granddaughters. Puts a smile on my face just thinking about it.
