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
Packing paper from Crate & Barrel
Light and airy for Spring — it’s like layers of petticoats. That’s why I let the black metal frame and clips show; to keep it from being too “sweet.”
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.
What all would you clip to this awesome and ever-changing clip on chandelier?
