Dressing your Chandelier for the Holidays

When decorating for the holidays – don’t forget the chandelier! Whether it’s located in the  entry or dining room, it deserves a little adornment.  It doesn’t need to be expensive or elaborate.  A few small touches can make a big difference to the overall look and feel.  I’m going to show you an inexpensive way to dress a plain dining room chandelier with just a few supplies:

  • Chandelier shades – purchased at Lowes
  • Black velvet ribbon
  • Fabric adhesive
  • Scissors

This plain chandelier needs a little sprucing up for the holidays.

Here is the “how-to” info:

For a little extra holiday feel, I wrapped a berry and twig garland around and added some fresh boxwood.  A simple, inexpensive and easy DIY project you can complete in about an hour!  What more can you ask!

The finished project! A berry and twig garland was wrapped around the base of the light and fresh boxwood sprigs are woven into it.

I hope you enjoyed this DIY holiday project!

I love this time of year and decorating for the holidays!  The visual transformation in my home puts me in the holiday spirit. For a few short weeks, we bring trees into our homes,  display collections of snowmen, Santas, elves,  serious or silly decorations and enjoy every minute of it.  It really is an opportunity to Design*Decorate*Delight in the fun of it all!  I wish you the happiest of holidays!!  Take some time to push aside all the hectic, craziness these few weeks add to our lives, and remember to enjoy the people you share the holidays with!
