DIY Floral Chandelier

To welcome in the new season – or to keep a little bit of floral cheer in your room try this floral chandelier craft. This is a project I’ve wanted to do for a few years, ever since I had breakfast with my family in Brisbane’s West End and took a snap shot of a gorgeous floral chandelier at a beautiful place.

I researched a few different versions of floral chandeliers online and found some ideas. I prefer the plastic though, it looks so real when it’s on your ceiling. It’s also so simple to make due to the wire. Very pretty. This would look great in a child’s room (especially one that loves fairies!)

Supplies:

  • Wire lampshade: In hindsight I wish I’d just grabbed a dollar lampshade from the tipshop and ripped the material off it. I ended up paying alot for this one from Spotlight. Bleh.
  • Fake flowers: I spent roughly $30 on fake flowers from Spotlight. I bought blue, purple, orange yellow and white ones. The white ones were the most expensive – it was a garland of six flowers. This is the garland that goes around the base. There were lots of different colours.
  • Fake ivy/greenery – again for the base of the lampshade.
  • Florists tape.
  • Scissors.

DIY Floral ChandelierThe instructions are pretty simple: decorate how you want! Just remember to keep weaving in and out and use the wire to your advantage.

  • Put the ivy around the bottom of the shade – weaving in and out – and then up and over the top of the lampshade.
  • Weaved the white garland of flowers around the base
  • Cut the stems off the purple and orange flowers so we could twist and place them within the greenery (this is where the florist’s tape comes in handy!)
  • Then cut flowers and leaves around the top part where the globe was going to sit as not to create a fire hazard!
  • Voila – your pretty chandelier is done!
