1. Tie the baskets together
DIY Everywhere
Take the two wire baskets and with one facing up and the other down, tie them together. You don't need anything fancy here -- just some simple butcher's string will work. Use the scissors to snip off any excess string.
2. Tape the lights to the basket
DIY Everywhere
Grab your favorite fairy lights -- we love the ones with a golden light lined up 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
Once you've finished the chandelier, you just need to put on the final touches. Cover up the battery chamber of the lights with a pretty little bowl. You probably have one somewhere in your house.

The bowl also acts as a booster that elevates your planter. All that's left now is for you to find an ideal spot to hang your gorgeous craft.
