diy: pom-pom chandelier

by mari

diy make your own handmade pom pom chandelier - neon, boho, stripe, mod, retro craft!

OH my sweet heavenly stars. As soon as I saw the photos of Bar’s Chandelier project, I got a little giddy. I have a sneaky feeling that you, dear readers, are going to LOVE this project. Besides, who doesn’t want an excuse to make a plethora of poms? I know I needed one! Here is our second fabulous post from Bar:

I love anything pom-pom related. I sometimes wish I were a kid again so that I could get away with sewing them all over my clothes. But I’m a “grown-up” now, so instead I made this chandelier (which did satisfy my pom-pom addiction quite nicely).

Here’s what you need:

This DIY is a labor of love. I would rate it challenging, but not at all impossible. First, you need to make lots and lots of pom-poms (54 to be exact). For my chandelier, I chose 6 different colors plus cream (to rest the eyes). I still can’t believe I bought these pom-pom makers. I’m not one for fancy products, but I love these contraptions! The photos will give you an idea of the sheer genius behind this invention. (They come with instructions, don’t worry.)

After you’ve made the pom-poms (which took me a while, making a few here and there over the course of a few weeks), it’s time to get to the more challenging parts…attaching them all together! Download this PDF for the full instructions. (Give it a try, I know you can do it!)

I’m so happy with this boho-chic chandelier. I love the combination of black striped ribbon, neon poms and silver shimmery thread.

Voilà! Here it is hanging in my home. Thanks for indulging me, and have a happy Monday!

I absolutely love this project! A fellow pom-pom addict, I have done several pom pom craft projects, however this might have to be my next! I love the color palette and the fact that you placed it in the dining room instead of a kids space. So fun.

Love this! I did one just like it last year for a craft blog I contribute to and it was a big hit – like Bar says, it’s a labour of love, but totally worth it :)

The fact is that not a lot of people enjoy this particular game
genre because it requires far more thought and intelligence than many of the games where you just run
around randomly shooting at things. Just as
we go to the gym and engage in exercise to increase our physical fitness,
