an ornament chandelier is my fave

December 7, 2011

I love a touch of sparkle and this ornament chandelier delivers just that. Lexy cranked this one out at the Denver make day and every time I passed by it I had to make a comment of admiration. It’s just so dang pretty.

To make your own you’ll need:
– a wire wreath frame with three rings
– 20 clear glass ornaments
– pretty embellishments (feathers, tinsel, glitter, sequins)
– thread

Fill each ornament with your gathered embellishments. Then attach each one to the wreath form by knotting with thread. Vary lengths for a chandelier effect. Hang from ceiling with fishing wire and hook. Sit back and admire.

    I agree with Anna — if you wrapped pretty tape or something around the silver ornament attachment it would look a bit less Christmasy and you could leave it up al year. Pretty!

    super cute – we won’t have a tree this year so maybe this is a good substitute. also bonus, since it’s hung from above, the babe can’t reach and topple it!

    I’ve been wanting to make an ornament chandelier for so long. They used to have a fancypants, non-holiday version that I would always lust after at Anthropologie. This looks so simple that I wonder what I’ve been waiting for! My husband made a garland out of marshmallows this year, and I think he’d be interested in trying out this for next year.
