I was asked to decorate for a Valentine dance my church was having. I was a little bit freaked out...because it was in this huge gym and I needed to make the room feel...well...not so huge. So I called my sister (i call her for all decorating emergencies) and she gave me this great idea. She suggested making a chandelier...WHAT!?! How do you do that? So with ideas from my sister and Hobby Lobby...I came up with this.
1 white sheet (purchased at goodwill) torn into strips
2 wire wreath frames (Hobby Lobby)
White toile (Hobby Lobby)
White icicle lights (Clearance item)
I placed the lights in the groove of the frame and wrapped the white sheet around the strand. I did this until both frames were filled. I then hooked the two frames together with the toile. It really looked great when the lights were on. I made a similar and much larger chandelier for the center of the gym. And no I didn't get pictures...I know I know...it was a crazy weekend. But I did take pictures of it hanging from my chandelier...at least it's a picture :)!
Yeah and I took a picture of it in broad day-light...not so smart...well you get the idea.
