My budget chandelier decoration!

olivesmomNovember 26, 2012

I'm in the midst of several house projects not to mention half completed holiday decorating, but I have to share my chandelier decoration. The greenery is a leftover piece of the cedar garland I used outdoors (which in itself is a great deal, $14.99 for 25' @costco) and the "crystals" we're $1 each and the center ornament maybe $3 at target last year. I should admit I'm using the term chandelier quite loosely, perhaps just light fixture would be more accurate- regardless I specifically wanted one like this just so I could decorate it at Christmas time. Anyway, here she is:

The lighting was making it hard to get a decent photo. And please ignore my lovely, half missing, vertical blinds. Replacement drapes are one of the projects I'm currently working on at the moment.

This is drop-dead GORGEOUS! Love it! Bargain prices on the crystals & love the center ornament! Looks great w/your garland!! And your original 'chandie' in itself is beautiful! TFS! Jeanne S.

VERY LOVELY!! Cedar does the best job of swagging and draping in my opinion and your crystals and the ornament add the sparkle factor...great job!

Absolutly beautiful.
There's something so elegant about living greenery and a tiny bit of crystal sparkle.

Gorgeous.
I've done something similar before and used beads but the crystals add so much more.
