My favorite kinds of crafts are those that I can complete during my kids’ afternoon naps. This turned out to be one of those projects. It was quick and easy, and I love the way the finished product looks hanging in my daughter’s bedroom.
For this project, you’ll need the following supplies:
- Hoop (I used a 4″ grapevine wreath from Dollar Tree. You could also use an embroidery hoop or a styrofoam hoop);
- Variety of Ribbon (I used five spools of ribbon of varying widths, patterns and shades of purple); and
- Glue Gun (You could also tie the ribbon to the hoop, but I think gluing the ends gives it a cleaner look)
All it takes to make your own ribbon chandelier is this:
- Hot glue the end of a very long ribbon to your hoop.
- Wrap the ribbon around the hoop to cover the form.
- Cut ribbons of varying length, which will serve as your chandelier pieces.
- Loop a ribbon around the top of your covered hoop and hot glue the back piece to the longer front part of your ribbon.
- Repeat all around the hoop.
- Hang and enjoy!
These would also look cute grouped together in varying sizes and/or colors. Another inexpensive variation for parties would be using streamers instead of ribbon.
