Ribbon Chandeliers are some of my favorite, easy, eye-popping, room-filling decorations.
I’ve seen them at all kinds of parties and even at a craft table at a children’s party. I’ve seen some gorgeous ones at weddings and bridal events. Teachers have used them for classroom corners. Mothers have made some fun nursery mobiles using this idea. And I’ve seen them made with outdoor materials for fun windsocks on the front porch.
The ideas are endless!
There are a variety of ways to make one, but the basics are the same.
All you need is:
- a hoop of some kind (a wire wreath frame, a hula hoop, a cross-stitch hoop, a cut-out oatmeal lid, etc.)
- lots of ribbons, fabric or streamers cut into strips (use all those leftover ribbon spools and fabric scraps)
- hot glue gun (and some people just tie the strips instead of glueing)
Here’s a short video by Sizzix using a cross-stick hoop.
Here’s a short video by The Sway using a wire wreath frame.
