colorful floral chandelier

Go above and beyond for your wedding décor! Make this colorful floral chandelier that’s sure to catch every guest’s eye. We’ll walk you through each step to help you DIY this gorgeous statement piece – just take a look at our instructions below!
Step 1
Project Note: You’ll need to be able to suspend this chandelier from a higher point as you’re building it, such as a ladder.
 
First, cut three 6’ lengths of jute. 
Step 2
Tie the end of one jute length to the 18" wire wreath frame. Repeat to tie on the other two strands, making sure they’re spaced out evenly around the frame. 
Step 3
Take one jute strand and measure about 12" up from where it’s attached to the 18" wreath frame. Tie the jute to the 12" wire wreath frame at that point. Repeat to tie the other two strands to the 12" frame. Make sure the strands are spaced at equal distances around this frame.

TIP: Once you’ve tied both wire wreath frames to the jute, hold the 12" wreath frame parallel to the ground and check to make sure the 18" frame is hanging 12" below it, also parallel to the ground. Double-check that the jute is evenly spaced around both frames to balance them, so that they hang level.
Step 4
Now, pull the ends of the three jute strands together. Center them above the 12" wreath frame and hold them in one hand, suspending both wreath frames above the ground. Use your other hand to adjust the wreath frames so that they hang level. 
Step 5
Once the wreath frames are level, tie an overhand knot in all three jute strands, knotting them together. Tie a second overhand knot about 12" above the first, then a third 12" higher than the second. Continue to add knots 12" apart, until you have the total length you need to hang your chandelier. Then, tie the jute onto a wood ring. (You’ll use the ring to hang your chandelier at the venue.) 
Step 6
Now it’s time to build your wreaths from flowers and garlands! First, wrap your boxwood garlands around the wire wreath forms. Use pieces of floral wire to secure the garlands to the frame around both wreaths.

TIP: When building our chandelier, we attached four garlands to the 18" wreath frame, and two garlands to the 12" wreath frame. If you’d like the same amount of fullness, we recommend you follow our lead!
Step 7
To give the chandelier a soft, organic feel, cut apart the vine bushes, then wire their stems to the frame, allowing them to hang down at varying levels. 
Step 8
Now, drape the Springeria vines around each wreath, allowing some vines to drape down in a natural way. 
Step 9
Flower time! Cut the flowers from the ranunculus, Queen Anne’s Lace and dahlia bushes, leaving a stem that’s about 1" long on each one. 
Step 10
Use hot glue to attach the flowers to the wreaths. Make sure to add floral to the tops and sides of both wreaths, but along the bottoms, too. Remember that your guests will be looking up from below! 
Step 11
Finish by adding delicate LED lighted strands to your wreaths. Tuck the battery pack for each one into the wreath to conceal it. Make sure to position each one so that you can easily access the switch to turn the lights on and off. Then, wire each battery pack to the wreath’s wire frame. Absolutely gorgeous!

TIP: Don’t forget to add batteries before you tuck away the battery pack!
