Floral chandeliers are brilliant on many levels. For one, they allow you to display your flowers at eye-level so your blooms are guaranteed to get the attention they deserve at any event; for another, they make a refreshing change from the usual table centrepieces; and last but not least, they won’t encroach on valuable space or make your table look crowded – making them as practical as they are pretty.
So when we saw this beautifully simple, rustic chandelier DIY project from fortheloveof.net, it was love at first sight…
What you’ll need:
- Metal hoops in 2 sizes (available at craft stores)
- Floral wire to attach the flowers
- Twine or string to tie the hoops together
- Wire cutters
- Fresh flowers
Best flowers to choose…
Blogger Alix has chosen a pretty mix of roses, carnations and daisies – but you can get as creative as you like with your favourite seasonal blooms. To turn your chandelier into a celebration of spring, why not try a combination of ranunculus and freesias that will bring a heavenly scent to the room. To give the look a modern edge, and provide a contrast to the pretty pastel petals, include a few black-centred anemones for good measure.
