One clip-on chandelier with endless style #Decor & Decorating#chandelier#diy#lighting September 14 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Apparently Pottery Barn Teen used to sell this really cool "Compose-It Chandelier." (They don't anymore, for some dumb reason!) But the super-crafty LolliePatchouli saw it in a magazine and had her "sweet and talented man build one at a price we could afford." And she has tips for how you could DIY one too… I'm thrilled that our chandelier is "loveable." I imagine a similar look could be achieved by attaching metal binder clips to a hanging drum shade. A double or triple tiered one would look even more like our light. A big, irregular coil of heavy wire surrounding a ceiling light could have paper items easily clipped all over it… LolliePatchouli has been having fun re-styling it for almost every season for years now. Check out all the ways she's had fun with this clip-on chandelier… Book pages, cards, and photos Related Post Adam Wallacavage's high drama light fixtures with Hello Kitty, octopus, and deer You've probably seen Adam Wallacavage's octopus chandeliers floating around the 'net before -- photos of them have made the rounds for a while now.

Sheet music and plants Pages from an old music book and sprigs of Hemlock, were a last minute change to the chandelier for Christmas Eve. Pages from an old world atlas I found an old world atlas, with pages just the right size for our "clip" chandelier. I really like how I catch glimpses of map on the backs of each page as I walk by.

Those babies could could get plenty hot. 4 agree Reply A good point! And perhaps the reason why Pottery Barn dropped it. But one could use a fluorescent these days. Thanks for bringing it up, so that people will exercise caution in their choices. 1 agrees Reply LED bulbs are also a low-temp, low power consuming alternative. We switched all our halogens over to LEDs and holy crap, our electric bill went down noticeably… and we live in an apartment! 3 agree Reply An excellent suggestion! I like LED light better than fluorescent, anyway. Reply I can think of all kinds of things! Any of these, alone or in combination. Lace. Sheer scarves. Store-bought pie-tin bottoms with designs punched in them. Aluminum foil with stencil-like designs carefully cut out. Feathers. Silk flowers and/or leaves. Kombucha "leather". Lots and lots of prisms. Christmas balls. Hallowe'en fake cobwebs. Twigs, maybe with cloth between. Burlap. Tassles. Damasque. Grasscloth. Flattish baskets. Fans. Christmas lights. Strings of transparent or translucent beads. Mardi Gras beads. Christmas-tree icicles. Wrapping paper, especially the holographic kind. Fishing-net. Manilla folders with designs cut out of them. Old straw hats. Ribbons. I'd better stop now. 5 agree Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
