Holy cow, y’all, I’m so stinkin’ excited to share my most recent project! I’ve been putting it off for a couple months, actually, but finally decided to just buck up and do it. A mere 2 hours later we had this beautiful light decoration for my daughters room! Now you can Make Your Own Frozen Chandelier in no time at all!
I’m not sure if it was listening to Idina Menzel’s Holiday Wishes CD that really put me in a holiday ‘Frozen’ mood, or I was just tired of looking at these supplies in a pile on the craft room floor, begging me to create something fabulous. Either way, I’m so glad I got around to re-doing this chandelier for Wonder Woman’s Frozen themed bedroom!
The original Frozen light fixture project we did was still beautiful and fun, but after awhile I decided it needed a change. More sparkle, more spunk. With all the holiday bobbles going on major sales, why not run out and buy the few supplies you need and whip this baby up? Seriously, it took me less than two hours. Can’t get much easier than that!
- Hoop, wire circle…something to use as the round ‘frame’
- Blue Spray paint (if needed to paint your ‘hoop’)
- Fake icicle/jewel type garland
- Silver/white wire or thick thread
- Glittery snowflakes
- Silver, white, blue (various shades) mini ornaments in various sizes
- If desired, sparkly tinsel in white, silver or blue
- Thick ribbon or pretty rope for hanging
- If your hoop/circle needs a color fix, spray paint it now so it has time to dry. I got a clearance Halloween wreath frame for $1, but it was orange. A quick spray paint job and it was a fabulous blue!
- Take your icicle garland thing and loop it randomly around the hoop, some dangling, all the way around. I recommend hanging it up to your light fixture now, so the garland doesn’t tangle and it’s easier to attach the next strand of things.
- If you also got some tinsel type things, now’s the time to weave it in, over, and around your hoop. I chose to skip this, even though I had some pretty white snowy stuff. Then take your silver thread/wire and string on the little ornaments and glittery snowflakes. Tie the wire securely around each item so they stay in place and don’t just slide on down. Do random orders of sizes and colors.
- Now use the wire (or extra pieces) to tie it randomly around the hoop. Let some hang down on the sides and across the middle.
That’s it! Now you have an absolutely beautiful, fun and Frozen chandelier! Use it to decorate a bedroom, as holiday decor, or even for fun parties! Here’s a view from beneath…imagine seeing this pretty image while you’re laying down to sleep at night, or to wake up to in the morning!
Wonder Woman was super excited when she came home from school to this surprise. Another early Christmas present for her (besides the Gameband for Minecraft), the lucky duck! She’s very loved and blessed, can ya tell?
