DIY Fabric Candelier

 Hey Everyone,

Its been a busy week, getting ready for the end of school term, taking care of a sick wee one and preparing for her birthday. 
But I couldn't resist quickly whipping up a fabric chandelier, I've seen them all over Pinterest and thought they looked really pretty and pretty easy!

If you have an embroidery hoop spare and some scrap fabric, you can throw one together in less than an hour!

I used my glue gun to secure strips of fabric, ribbon and lace to the inner hoop and once filled, I slotted the outer hoop on and secured it. I used left over ribbon to hang the chandelier. 

See - so easy!

We had some sun today so I took my new fabric chandelier outside for a few photos!

Don't you just love how it looks, picking up a gentle breeze?

 I'm going to hang it up in my room, and the girls have asked for one too, so I think a blinged up pink one may be in the cards real soon!

And it most definitely cheered up my Winter's day!

Take care
