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.
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.
Pink flower bowls from HomeGoods add color and femininity to the table.
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!
