I worked on and finished the chandelier I planned on making out of a wagon wheel that Big Lots had sold earlier this spring. It was an easy project, and a how-to will be coming shortly to my site.

I think I'll buy a OTC posable plastic skellie to have seated on top of the chandelier as my "finishing touch" for this one. This should look pretty cool hanging above my salty pirates in this year's Pirate's Lair-themed shed I'm working on.

Great job Z! I agree, the skellies would be perfect!
Maybe a bit of cobwebs hanging from the bottom?
Just a thought!
We had those same wheels here in Ohio, and I can kick myself for putting them back......Live~N~Learn

Thanks for the kind words and suggesting. I plan on spraying it down with the hot-glue cobwebber I plan on making this year. Of course, I've planned on making it for the past three years, so, you know...

I was thinking of maybe making it look like the skellie is swinging from it by screwing his hands to the ceiling and screwing his feet to the wheel in such a fashion as to have the wheel pushed out from where it's hanging by the skellie's feet.

Oooooo. I like that idea of it looking like he's swinging from it!

Very effective - it already looks old - can't wait to see pics when you've put more touches on it.

Oh, sure... you show this after I purchase two Halloween chandeliers from QVC!

Looks great. Finishing touches will add that little something extra.

Keep building and sharing!
