Sometimes it is the simple, small moments in life that bring you tremendous joy. For example, randomly one day a friend of mine decided to take off the crystals from her chandelier and decided to give them to me to use however I could see fit for a DIY. Needless to say, it was a huge welcomed surprise which later was used to make these crystal ornaments for my Christmas tree. Not only my easiest DIY to date, they make stunning rainbows from reflecting the lights on the tree and give an extra bit of sparkle. Lack friends who randomly give you a bag of crystals? Go check out your local second hand store or garage sale and buy a chandelier you can take the crystals from.
- Crystals from an old chandelier
- Metal hooks for hanging ornaments
DIY CHANDELIER ORNAMENT
To make the chandelier ornament all I did was slip a metal hook around the top loop of the crystal and squeeze the bottom of the hook shut with my fingers so that the crystal wouldn’t come off. Presto, a Christmas ornament!
