Insulator Chandelier

One of the fun features of my junky lil' gazebo, is the insulator chandelier! 

I made it several years ago out of old telephone insulators, heavy wire (think barbed wire, without the barbs), and beads. 

When we made over the gazebo, I knew this was exactly where the chandy had to hang and I think it looks right fine with the Christmas decorations.

I use small tea lights candles in the insulators to give a glowy look, although I would like to find some battery powered tea lights. I have to be careful with the burlap draped nearby and keep a close eye out. Sure don't want to burn down my gazebo.

This weekend is a little too cold for having a porch sittin'. Hope you are all warm, cozy, and safe from the massive ice storm. We just got a light sprinkling of ice, but they say more could come tonight. Right now, I'm ready for spring and warmer temperatures to enjoy sitting outside in the yard ;)
