Who has seen these gorgeous chandeliers on Design Sponge or Pinterest? I think they look so pretty hanging in my trees and would be gorgeous for an outdoor wedding. I have loved the idea for a while now and finally got to make not one, not two but four of them! They have kept me so busy these past two weeks and here they are 300 ft. of wax paper, over 400 ft. of ribbon and ton of hot glue and only 1 burn later.
I was asked to help with the new stage design at my church and they will be so pretty hanging with lights shining up into them. Can't wait to see what they will look like with stained glass printed panels-of course I'll be posting pictures when it's all set up. Below is the tutorial and materials list if you want to make your own:
Do you know what these are made out of? Wax paper.
Something ordinary turned into something beautiful. (It's a lot like what God does when we let Him transform our lives...)
Before you begin, you might want to know that it took me 6-8 hours to make each one and I used 24" planter baskets-but they probably could be done smaller in a lesser amount of time.

Now that I'm an "expert" at making Faux Capiz Shell Chandeliers I plan on making some for my own house. I wonder what it would look like if I melted silver crayon shavings into them? That will be an experiment for another day...Can't wait to show you how it all looks up on the big stage-stay tuned for more pictures and thanks for visiting ReMadeSimple!
Linking up with these parties.
