Light up Your Life With a Twig Chandelier!

Desiring a chandelier a little out of the norm, I eyed up a basic frame found at the thrift store and set about twigging it out. :)
NOTE: please ensure the twigs are a safe distance from the bulbs. This frame worked out beautifully! Tutorial is available.
Difficulty: Moderate
This chandelier looks complicated, but that couldn't be further from the truth!
Starting with a thrift store chandy, I sprayed it white, then gathered up grapevines and willow tree branches, both while still green.
The twigs and branches were attached with twine in all the right places. (more attaching tips are avail)
The works then received a coat of white spray paint. The end result truly looks as if the entire light was created out of twigs! Sneaky, eh? :)
Ahhhh... perfection. :)
And finally, what inspired me. Found it in a gift shop and it was worth several thousand dollars! Mine was $10. :)
