OK. First of all, I found this project at 504 Main. The paper chandelier was not my idea…but oh, how I wish I could claim it.
Basically, I took the idea and made it my own.
This paper chandelier was really hard to photograph. I tried to pick up on all the sparkle from the beads, charms and glitter on the paper. It was not happening indoors.
So I went outside (thanks for hanging the chandelier in a tree sweet hubby).
And sparkle photos?
Not so much.
I might have to take individual photos of the hanging tags…
I may have to re-think this post.
No, I think I’ll just keep showing photos now.
Anyway, here’s a shot of the paper:
The paper chandelier seen above was actually my second attempt. The first time I attached the paper to the wire, the folds were too large for my liking.
Then, I decided that I wanted to add cute scalloped edges on the paper and glitter, glitter, glitter!
I am much happier with the result the second time around (with a little a lot of help from my mom and sister). My mom was a sport, taking the paper off the wire, cutting it down to the size I wanted and re-folding. And then my sister helped by applying some glitter to the paper.
By the time I finished the tag charms and cutting more paper (I needed more because the folds were smaller), it was pretty late at night. The project was not as simple as I imagined but I am so pleased with the result.
What do you think? Do you like it?
Should I take photos of the individual tags?
Just in case you were wondering…yes, that is snow on my neighbor’s roof (and on the ground). It’s c-c-cold.
Thanks for stopping by!
