Duct tape
Battery operated fairy lights
A small bowl

Directions
1. Tie your baskets together
DIY Everywhere
Take your two fruit baskets and with one facing up and the other down, tie them together. You don't need anything fancy here, just some simple butchers string will work. Grab the scissors and use them to snip off any excess string so it looks nice and clean.
2. Tape the lights to the basket
DIY Everywhere
Grab your favorite fairy lights -- we love the ones with a golden light that are on copper or silver string -- and start weaving them around the baskets. Be sure to tape the battery operated part to the center of the bottom basket. Tape it securely, but enough where you can also get in and put in new batteries when you need to.
3. Put it all together
DIY Everywhere
Now that the chandelier is finished you just need to put on the final touches. Cover up the battery chamber of the lights with a pretty little bowl that you have lying around the house.

This also acts as a little booster that elevates your planter higher up. Now all you need to do is find the perfect spot to hang your gorgeous craft!
