Light up your life with a twig chandelier!

Awesome Remodels 3 hours ago
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.

    Christine - They have to be fresh to bend.

    Twigs from a Snowball tree would work good to ..they grow fast and bend easy .. ive made a trellis from one .. I love the chandelier..

    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!!
