mini chandeliers

October 22, 2011

I had to run an errand this morning and found myself driving right by a Hobby Lobby on the way home.  Convenient.  So I stopped in to pick up some supplies. Nothing like starting the weekend with a new craft project.

It’s tiny, made of floral wire and assorted beads.

Then I made another with little white vintage buttons and beads salvaged from a lamp project earlier this year.

It all started when I went to visit my mom last month and took a sketchbook along for the trip.  This particular idea began simply by drawing a basic shape and changing the dimensions with each progression.  In a flash it became a mini chandelier.

I don’t have the proper tools to work with metal, so my results are not as clean as they could be.

But I love them anyway.  They’re simple and adorable.  Perfect for my home sweet homemade Christmas tree.

Thank you for dropping by.  I hope you’re having a perfectly wonderful weekend!
