eucalyptus chandelier diy

eucalyptus chandelier

when the holiday rolls around, eyes get bigger and budgets get tighter. we are on a super tight budget this holiday season, but i couldn't let it stop me from decorating for the holidays!

i saw this chandelier amanda of 100layercake made and absolutely loved it so i decided to make my own! all in all it's a lovely (and very cheap) diy to spruce up your home, especially if you have eucalyptus around your area. all i purchased was an embroidery hoop (for about a dollar at michael's) and used some wire to attach the branches to the hoop. voila!

I absolutely LOVE this idea. Simple, inexpensive, but so effective. I definitely want to try it myself!

This looks so simple and beautiful, Connie! I love it. I'm trying to think of substitute branches in Oregon... or maybe this is something to save for the spring?! xo

@linnea That sounds beautiful! I think it would look great with branches, you'd probably just have to wind it around the actual hoop to hide it more.
