Lately I have been seeing some pretty cool chandeliers that [if I had time and were the least bit crafty] I could make myself. Since I’m probably not going to, I thought you might. If you do, send me some pics!
Here are my faves:
This Bubble Yarn Lampshade by Pickles was featured on re-nest and is actually something I might try to make. It’s kind of like doing paper-mache and kids do that, so I should be able to do this, right?
These DIY Bubble Chandeliers have been popping up everywhere. I like this gold version from Jean Pelle.
The picture above is of Pottery Barn’s Edison Chandelier and there is a similar DIY version hack on Instructables using Hemma lights from Ikea.. It doesn’t look like a beginner project, but it could save you $300.
These Paperclip [yes paperclip] Chandeliers are from Resdesign Technologies. You can purchase one custom made, get a downloadable PDF tutorial, or a semi-assembled kit.
This Birdcage Chandelier [via Kitschy Galore] doesn’t come with a tutorial, but looks pretty easy to make. I’ve sent her a message to see if I can get the DIY from her and if I do, I will post it!
If you have a DIY Chandelier Tutorial you would like to share, just send me an email or Tweet me! XO
