Awhile back I posted the picture below of
a chandelier I was in the process of making.
I had started with a wire hanging basket that
was meant for hanging and putting candles in it.
1. Originally it was cream colored, so I first spray
painted it pink and then added the
crystals-wish I had thought to take a before
picture...just think plain vanilla LOL
2. Next I removed the decorative covers over a string
of outside party lights, wrapped each light with
painter's tape, then spray painted the strand pink
to match the wire baskets.
3. Once that lights strand was dry I removed the
tape and begin wrapping it around the wire baskets
then I mixed up the decorative light covers from
2 strands...inside the baskets I used metal can type
covers and for the other lights towards the
center I used flower covers.
4. Next I spray painted an extension cord the
appropriate length and then hubby added a turn switch
for me so I didn't have to unplug it each time.
Here is my chandelier all lit up! I have to say my
husband wasn't overly thrilled with it until he saw
it lit up and then he loved it!
