20 DIY Chandeliers to Brighten Up Your Space
A few weeks ago we ventured into the world of DIY lighting, complete with vintage-style marquees, yarn lanterns, and the like. While researching this, we came across a whole bunch of gorgeous DIY chandeliers as well! Making your own chandelier definitely takes a little more elbow grease than a mason jar with a light bulb in it, but all of these projects are totally doable and perfect for weekend making. Be sure to let us know if you have a favorite in the comments below – and stay tuned for our own DIY chandelier in the next few days!
7. Candle Lantern Chandelier: Next time you find yourself at an antique fair, keep your eye out for this type of lantern. Traditionally made for candles, it’s pretty easy to rework for more modern lighting. (via Vintage Revivals)
11. Test Tube Chandelier: You may recognize this from the BritList! We love the idea of a chandelier filled with wildflowers. Plus, you can order test tubes just like these over on Amazon. (via PaniJurek on Etsy)
20. Bright Beaded Chandelier: Last, party time! You’d have to show a lot of you know what to stock up on this many Mardi Gras beads… or you could probably buy them in bulk at Party City ;) (via Makely Home)
