I had found this old chandelier along side the road last week.

image

Most of the”candles” were already partly stripped down.

image

To do so simply remove the bulb, slide the plastic past that is supposed to look like a candle up,and then slide the cardboard up.  This exposes the wiring.  I’ll go back to that in a little bit.

image

Next unscrew the center part of the chandelier and pull the wires out.

image

Next flip it over and remove the bottom.

image

image

Once the bottom is opened up and the wires are exposed remove the wire nuts and electrical tape.  Unwind all of the wires.

image

Disconnect the wires from each part of the fixture and pull them out.  Reassemble the chandelier without the wiring.

image

Once the wires are out of the way remove the inner part of the individual candles and replace them with the type of brass nuts used for lamps.  You should be able to find these at your local hardware store.

image

After that the chandelier is ready for candles.
