So I did it and it was super easy! One trip to the hardware store, a few supplies and a few hours later...
...chain of your liking (I used about 20 ft), hooks (I used six)...and oh yeah, votive holders (with a shape conclusive to being hung), and tea lights
I wrapped the wire around the votive holder for a rough measurement then removed votive holder and used the wire pliers to tightly wrap the wire around itself on one side.
I used the larger pliers to disconnect the chain and make six even pieces of chain. Then I strung the chain through the wire and used the wire pliers to wrap the wire around the other side (again, with the votive holder out).
To hang, twist hooks into the wall using tape measure if you want them spaced evenly. Then hang either at even lengths or different lengths. I went the different lengths route.
