Christmas wreath chandelier

Christmas wreath chandelier DIY I don't know how 2017 Christmas came round so quickly, but our house is still not there yet with all the DIY's. Although I am glad with current progress on our new kitchen that might be functional this year (yey!), when it comes to Christmas decoration I realised we are still not ready for an actual Christmas tree. For starters, children would rip it apart in few seconds. So not worth the stress...

Unless I can hang it? And this is how Christmas chandelier idea came around :-).Make your own Christmas wreath chandelier To begin with I made the wreath. For this you will need some sort of hoop. I ripped our old lamp shade apart to get the hoop that turned out to be a bit rusted (never mind), but maybe you can use embroidery hoop instead (the inner part)?? Anyways, this is why I categorised this project as upcycled ;-).Make your own Christmas wreath chandelier Because I ripped our old lampshade I also got an attachment to connect the hoop to the lamp. I covered both (the attachment and the hoop) with some greenery (mostly parts of the tree in my friends garden). Make your own Christmas wreath chandelierI used three treads to connect the attachment with the hoop. Hope it's visible in the picture bellow.Make your own Christmas wreath chandelier As for Christmas "tree" deco I chose baubles that I decided to customise myself. I thought to paint with the acrylic that I already have... very risky I know! But I have to be frugal sometimes. Turned out to be ok actually, not sure how long it would last. The black acrylic pain was a bit watery and run in places a bit, but created a nice sort of vintage look. Make your own Christmas wreath chandelierAfter hanging all there baubles on the wreath, there were few leftover. I mounted them above our mantelpiece so everything looks Christmas ready. If only we stayed at home for all the celebrations.Make your own Christmas wreath chandelierHope you feel inspired and ready ahead with Christmas decorating.
