We decided to build a chandleier but with candles and mason jars. It took us the better part of a weekend but it came out looking like something right off of Etsy.
We built spiral platforms around a column. The mason jar lids were press fit into holes cut from the wood using a circle guide and a Dremel rotarty tool. The jar bottoms could then be screwed and unscred from the lids where candles could be placed inside.
The light cast from the candles made a really cool effect as it danced about the room.
