Swing into the school year with this whimsical mermaid-scale chandelier that even lights up!
You will need:
- Low Temp Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Flameless LED Tea Light
- Jute Cord
- Craft paper
- Florist Wire
- Embroidery hoop (optional)
- Shells, and other decorations
|1.||Simply make a 6-inch circle with florist wire and wrap it with jute cord. You can make your circle larger or smaller depending on how you would like your chandelier to look. You could also use an embroidery hoop in place of the florist wire for your circle.
|2.||Cut five (5) separate strands each between 6-8 inches. You can change these lengths if desired. Varying the lengths will give your chandelier more interest.
|3.||Tie the five (5) strands onto the loop that you made in step one. This will make the bottom level of your chandelier.|
|4.||Use your hot glue gun to attach jute cord or other decorations around and to the edge of the LED tea light.
|5.||Cut three pieces of 8-inch florist wire. Attach these pieces to the circle you made in step one and then onto the LED tea light.|
|6.||Once you have the structure of your chandelier complete, decorate the hanging strands. This can be done with craft paper, shells, pearls etc. Keep in mind, the heavier your chandelier becomes, the stronger magnet you will need.
|7.||Attach a strong magnet or Velcro tab to the top of the magnet making sure to leave the switch uncovered.
|8.||Hang in your locker and channel your mermaid vibes for the rest of the school year!
