DIY Boho Chandelier

5 Materials
2 Hours

I’m not a big fan of the hanging light that came with our kitchen when we bought our house. It wasn’t hung in the center of our kitchen, so we centered it with a ceiling hook. Over the years, I’ve done lots of different things to change the look of the light, but this DIY Boho Chandelier might be my favorite. It was so easy to make and I love the cozy feeling it gives the room.

I had a wreath frame that was the perfect size for this chandelier. You want a frame that’s large enough to slide over the light fixture. This chandelier will look best using a wreath with two or three different ring sizes.

Decide how long your want your yarn to hang (the yarn will be folded in half) and cut into equal lengths. I grouped 4 pieces of yarn together and tied with a larks head knot on the wreath frame. I started with the longest, hanging pieces.

Work your way around the frame until it’s filled up. Start on the next ring with shorter yarn.

When you finish with the yarn, it’s time to move on to the sequins. I used a needle and thread to attach the sequins to each other. Leave extra thread at the end of the sequins because this is how you’ll attach them to the chandelier.

Tie the sequins to the frame of your chandelier. I used gold, silver and iridescent sequins, but you can use beads instead if you prefer. I hung the sequins randomly around my chandelier. Some of the sequin strips were made longer and I attached both sides to the frame to create a draped look.

When I finished adding the sequins, it was time to hang my chandelier. I tied a couple pieces of yarn to my frame, ran them through the hanging light chain and then tied them in a double knot to the opposite side of the frame. You can also use a small chain to connect the chandelier if you prefer.

After my chandelier was hung, I went around and unraveled some of the yarn.

    Wondering will the heat from the light be a concern?
