If you couldn’t tell by now, I heart funky lighting. When I saw this fixture at Urban Outfitters, I knew I could make something of it.
At just $39 this little beauty can add a lot of
punch for not a lot of cash.
I purchased the white version at our local Urban Outfitters. 12X12 scrapbook paper is almost large enough to cover each
1/8 of the chandelier so I bought 16 papers total.
There are so many amazing colors and designs that it was difficult to chose the right 16, but this was going in a teenage girls room so I let her tastes dictate the final selection. We decided on a bird theme with an Anthropologie vibe. The orange, brown, and hot pink trees were painted from a stencil Urban Outfitters used to sell.
Before assembling it I laid the chandelier so that
1/2 of one side was on top of the paper.
I traced the chandelier and then cut out the scrapbook paper.
With a glue stick I applied each paper to each side.
We assembled the chandelier and used bright
pipe cleaners from the craft store to keep it together.
We installed the light kit (sold separately),
hung it from a ceiling hook and turned it on.
It turned out so cute in my niece Mia’s room.
Later when my neighbor was redecorating her daughters room, I told her about the chandelier we had made. Then I offered to make it for her, since it was so simple.
Here it is in Madeline’s room.
