DIY Floral Chandelier

In this tutorial, we kept it simple with some Kimberly ferns, wreath hangers and gold wire from the holidays.  I could see this or something like it hung at a wedding for a couple who loves minimalism.   Also, how sweet would it be on a patio where little treasures from the garden could live for a day or two?  Be sure to go easy on the water and keep your ingredients light.  This thing is HEAVY!

    Materials:

    • 65 Test Tubes (25 for bottom, 40 for top)
    • Gold Wire (heavier gauge is preferable)
    • Wire Cutters
    • Gold Spray Paint
    • 12” and 18” Wreath Form

    Instructions:

    1. Spray paint wreath forms gold and put aside to dry
    2. Cut gold wire as follows: Seventy 10” pieces, three 15” pieces and four 25” pieces
    3. Take 10” piece of wire and wrap around test tube in an “X” shape, twisting the ends together to form a tight cage for the test tube to rest inside
    4. Attach wire to wreath form in a “W” shape
    5. Repeat with all test tubes
    6. Using the 15” pieces, and with the help of a friend, attach the upper and lower forms together.  Be mindful of wrapping and overlapping to create a sturdy tie
    7. Attach the 25″ pieces to the largest piece and anchor on four corners, bringing each wire to center and twisting them around one another to form a cord of wire.  Depending on where the piece will be hung, you may wrap the excess wire into the shape of a circle so it can be hung on a hook
