The other day at work, my friend, Jessica, directed me too a wonderful new blog called A Beautiful Mess. If you have never checked it out, go there right now! I absolutely love everything about it. Elsie, the writer of this fantastic blog, has a plethora of fun DIY projects including the one below. (The pic is from her site.)
Pretty much ever since I put up the chinese lantern in my room, I have been dissatisfied with it. I didn't love the shape or the look and for the last year or so I haven't even had a light bulb in it. So when I saw the fabric chandelier on Elsie's blog, I knew it would be the perfect fit.
So this past weekend I decided to do it. What I liked about this project in particular was that all the materials were things I already had around the house. It's made out of an old fashioned cookie cooling rack (which we happened to have), some white fabric and lace, and a sewing needle and thread. :)
Here is the finished product in my room.
After it's complete you stick some white fairy lights through the rack and hang with an extension cord.
Just the right amount of whimsy for my room!
