No haunted house is complete without a spooky chandelier, right?  Just in time for Halloween decorating, Miya of Jellyfish Jelly dug around in her recycling bin and came up with all of the components she needed to make one out of cardboard!  Her instructions include a printable template so you can reproduce it for yourself.  Make it even spookier by draping it with some cottony "spider webbing," or give it a more colorful paint job and use it as decoration for parties of any kind.  [how to make a cardboard chandelier]

Project estimate:

  • Cereal boxes, on hand
  • Paper towel roll, on hand
  • Paperclips, on hand or $1
  • Plastic soda bottle, on hand
  • Paint, on hand or $1

Total:  Free and up

    Cute! This would be great for a time other than Halloween. :) (Although, it’s kinda Halloween year ’round in my head …)
