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.
