How to Make a Stunning Twig Chandelier

by Sarah - Craft Invaders

We live in a Victorian house which is an ongoing project. Consequently, we have a reception room that is still on the to-do list, and needs fairly major work such as a new ceiling.

Our Twig Chandelier makes a beautiful ceiling Christmas Decoration. Check out our video to see exactly how we made it!

The upside of this is I am allowed to do pretty much what I want in this room, so each year at Christmas time, out comes the staple gun, and the room gets a makeover of Ivy, Holly and anything else that takes my fancy to cover up the large gaps between the walls and ceiling. For the last few years we have had a Twig Chandelier in the centre of the ceiling, it may not be to everyone’s taste, but it is a brilliant way to brighten up a less than perfect room, so I thought I would share our video on how we put it together.

I have collected these glass baubles for a few years now (just buying 2 or 3 each January) but you could make equally lovely ones using the drops off old chandeliers or other glass beads threaded on wire, or even crystal ones you have grown yourself. If, like I often do, you end up leaving the twigs up as a more permanent feature, they look equally pretty with other decorations on them, such as Easter Eggs, or little felted birds.

It’s very simple but looks lovely once it’s up – if you ever make one you’ll have to show us 🙂

This is so beautiful and original. Thank you for sharing. When I have a house I will remember to do something like this. I have pin this for use at later date. Hope that is okay with you. #PicknMix

I love this, our local pub dies the same thing but uses the old rafters as the frame and builds it from here, last year they did it and kept it up for my Husband’s 50th birthday there in February, in the end they left it all year and it is always admired. I love your video to support the post and relaxing music!

I got the idea from a pub we visited years ago in Wales. So pleased you like the video – it’s slightly less hypnotic than the firelighter one lol
