Light up your life with a twig chandelier!

Lighting 12.07.14
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.

    I see that it would be easy to create. Just have to have fresh vines and twigs. Great job. Love it.

    Thanks everyone! Yes, the key definitely is using fresh twigs and vines that can still bend. I even painted them the same day and it worked great! No curing was required. :)

    A nice take on mid-19th century antler chandeliers - I have the perfect frame already, but my twigs are under a foot of snow!!
