Today I’m sharing a fun project that was inspired by YouTube. I’ve seen countless tutorials for Diy chandeliers, both for indoor and outdoor use. But I kept seeing a common theme, which was bling. Now, I’m not a very “blingy” girl. So, while the projects I came across were beautiful, they weren’t quite my style. So, I came up with something a little more toned down and that would complement the outdoor décor I had already created.
Just about all the supplies I used were from Dollar Tree, except for the jute rope (that you could find at the dollar store) which I had on hand. In addition to the rope, I used a hanging planter (which I spray painted white), hot glue, shells, and my string lights (which I repurposed for this project).
secured the rope onto the inner ring of the plant hanger and looped it around 3 of the wire separations, creating a crisscross effect and secured the end with hot glue
|I repeated this step 3 times|
– I didn’t measure the rope, just eyeballed it
removed the decorative balls from the string lights and strung 3 of them onto a piece of rope, which I looped around the planter frame (in the open spaces between the rope detail) and secured with a knot.
added decorative shells around the center ring, and secured with hot glue
- This covered up the knots from the rope holding the balls
moved the clips to the wire just above the inner ring, and shortened it so it would be less visible
– I also attached the string light battery packs to the wire
|Here it is hanging from my patio umbrella.|
And there you have it. I hope that description made sense! Let me know what you think. I hope this inspired you to get your creative juices flowing. I would love to see what you come up with! Thanks, and God Bless!
