My budget chandelier decoration!

Posted by olivesmom (My Page) on

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.

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!

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