Make a Fabulous Paper Clip Chandelier
Paper clips have to be one of the seven wonders of DIY world. MacGuyver never went anywhere without one! These fabulous chandeliers are made from paper clips - amazing, aren't they? I found out about the paper clip chandelier thanks to a Craftster dollar store crafting swap I'm currently participating in. Craftster user skullseamstress created the lamp entirely from dollar store materials, using a tutorial she purchased from Re:Design Technologies on Etsy. Skullseamstress posted a nice flickr set of her paper clip chandelier including making it and packing it to ship to her swap partner. [click here for the paperclip chandelier gallery]
As for the tutorial for making this fabulous chandelier, check out the Re:Design Technologies Etsy shop. You can get all the instructions for four different chandelier designs for less than $15 (as of my typing this - but they're having a sale a the moment), or choose one design for $6.50. You can also check out the Re:Design blog.
Here are skullmistress's supplies for the chandelier.
- 3 Picture hanging kits, $3
- 6 boxes of paper clips, $6
Total: $9 (plus the cost of the instructions, if needed)
