Ribbon Chandelier: An Easy DIY Project

When summer rolls around I like to add a bit of decorating whimsy. To create a pretty summer table setting, I decided to make an easy DIY ribbon chandelier in pink and white. I’m sharing the instructions so you can make one of your own!

I promise you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create your own ribbon chandelier. Choose a color scheme and head to the store for rolls of ribbon. I opted for pink and white with a touch of gold. I plan to give this to my granddaughter for her bedroom.

In addition to ribbon, you’ll need a wooden embroidery hoop. Mine is 10″ in diameter. Since I wanted the ribbons to hang about 18″ long, I cut ribbon lengths at about 3-feet each. Some are slightly shorter, some slightly longer – to give a staggered look to the length.

Supplies to Make DIY Ribbon Chandelier


Remove the outside circle of the embroidery hoop and keep the inside circle for your ribbon chandelier. Working with one stretch of ribbon at a time, tie each piece around the embroidery hoop. You can double knot the ribbons if they don’t stay put. Push the ribbons next to each other so none of the wooden hoop shows through.

Tie 3 to 4 equal pieces of fishing line in even spacing to the hoop. Knot them together at the ends and hang from a small hook.

Your ribbon chandelier can go almost anywhere – a bedroom, the front porch, on the deck or patio, or even a shepherd’s hook in the yard. I opted for the breakfast nook to create a playful setting.

To create my centerpiece, I filled an etched metal garden pot with faux pink peonies and roses.

Gold vases and candle holders pull out the gold in my DIY ribbon chandelier. I added leftover strips of ribbon to my table runner to add a little interest.

Now I’m ready to have a friend over for lunch or brunch! And my granddaughter can’t wait until the ribbon chandelier is hers. She gasped when she saw it!

    1. Hi Susan!
      You could probably get the outside hoop to fit back on, but then it would cover up the ribbons. The idea was to hide the wooden ring of the hoop with the ribbons – but you could create a slightly different look by putting the outside hoop onto the chandelier. Give it a try and see how it looks! 🙂

  1. So cute! I have seen these before but now I want to make one for my bedroom in blues! Thanks for the inspiration! karen…

  2. I’m assuming there is no light inside…..I think I will try and make one to cover a really ugly ceiling fixture that I don’t want to replace right now.

  3. How cute would this be as decor for a baby shower. I’m loving the use of pink this year and am seeing it everywhere. I know by this time next year there will be another color that is trending, but for now, I’m enjoying it.

  4. This is just so pretty! It really does add a lot of whimsy. I think my daughter would love this – may have to add this to her room. She loves ribbons.

  5. This is so cute, think i will make one for my granddaughter. Thanks Jennifer great idea.

  6. This is adorable, Jennifer. I love how whimsical it is. I could see this hanging outdoors for a pretty garden party or in a barn too. Your home looks all ready for summer. x

  7. Awesome, Jennifer! I love this sweet idea – so whimsical for summer!! So glad you could be part of this hop! Pinned and sharing:)

  8. Jennifer, this is delicious. So much warmth and comfort. I so do not have enough. My husband is an avid hunter. Therefor I so want tenderness and lightness in the interior! How can I convince him of this and I don’t know …
