Holiday Chandelier

9 Materials
2 Hours

What embraces decorating the holidays more than lights! I wanted to create something for a dark corner in my family room...something magical! I had an idea what I was going to do, and started going through my Christmas bins looking for inspiration!

I started my project with a wire wreath, chains, hooks and a strand of icicle lights.

 I sprayed the wreath, chains and hooks with Rustoleum American Accents White Flat Spray Paint. When they were dry, I topped it with Rustoleum 2x Ultra Cover Matte Clear to protect from all elements.

 I then wrapped the lights around the wired wreath, letting the strands fall through.

 I added a garland and picks around the wreath attaching with thin wire. I added ornaments and a very special angel front and center. The angel was my grandmothers and each year I try to incorporate it in my holiday decorating. Every time I pass it I think of her and smile.

I then added some colorful garland to the 3 chains,.I ended the lights at the top where the hook is. I attached a extension cord to the end of the lights that has an on/off switch .

This is how it looks now that I've finished

    It’s a great idea concept... I’m going to do it but use a premade wreath, and the chain from one of my porch hanging baskets which are stored for the season.... though I may want to do this in the summertime with a grapevine wreath, I’m thinking that could be really cool too!!!! Thanks for the 💡 idea!!!
