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.

Sarah, this is an amazing project!! No one would notice the gaps between the walls and the ceiling, and I am sure it will look great not only with Christmas decor.

Sarah, this is amazing! I love how you bring the outside in, this looks like a winter fairy land. I bet it is the focal point of this room, who would ever notice other imperfections when gazing at this beauty!

I would leave it up all year round too! It’s stunning!

Thanks Nikki, it does look pretty with all the glass reflecting the light and it definitely does the job of distracting from the ceiling itself!

Thank you Mary, it does seem to stop people in their tracks when they see it lol – never quite sure if that’s good or bad, but we love it 🙂
