I keep seeing pictures of ribbon chandeliers and loving how cute they look. I “ohhh” and “ahh” over them on pinterest (of course) and figured something that cute must be difficult to make. I mean….look:
But then I was reading younghouselove, and Sherry’s description made it sound super easy.
Love it! The toughest part was picking out the ribbons! I spray painted an embroidery hoop white (which was probably an unnecessary step…it doesnt show at all). Then I cut the ribbon into 18 inch strips (or close to). While I cut the ribbon, the glue gun heated up. I then glued the ribbon onto the hoop! After the ribbon was covering the hoop completely, I took little bitty hooks and screwed them into the ceiling…that’s it!
The play/guest room is nowhere near complete, but I wanted to hang it up right away.
I think it turned out great, especially considering the amount of effort but into it. It is even in manly colors for HJ’s manly playroom :).
Have you made anything lately?
I will post pics of the house soon, I promise! I just need to transfer the pictures from my camera to the computer. I know the phone pictures don’t turn out the best.
