Lovely Paper Chandeliers

I have been thinking about paper chandeliers lately... and when I did a search, this one came up.  Look at how pretty:

I really am smitten with this pretty butterfly chandelier.. I love how the butterflies just seem to flutter around each other! I found this at Carina Gardner and she's even shared free printable butterfly templates to use if you would like to make your own!

So I did another search and look:

These look to be made with some sort of metal form with circles hung in rows from some sort of see thru thread or fishing line.  I think these would be very easy to make.

One last photo:

This is a beautiful chandelier which apparently is located in Paris... Isn't it gorgeous!  This one might be a bit harder to make.. since it's so huge!  Maybe one like this... but scaled down some :0)  Interesting is that it looks like the paper strips are fastened to the wire frame by those metal type paper clips.

I hope these photos may have inspired you to make a paper chandelier of your own. I'm going to  :0)
Pin It!
