Halloween Chandelier on the Cheap
I've been staring at this dust-collecting-fruit bowl-thrift find for weeks now.  It has served as a great book end these last few years but I've been thinking, it's time for a costume change!

Supplies: Mardi Gras beads, other decorative beads (whatever you may want to hang from the chandelier), fruit bowl or colander, spray paint, hot glue and toilet paper cardboard inserts.


Halloween Chandelier on the Cheap

Step 1: Construct a few Toilet Paper Roll Candles (I used 5 for this project).Step 2: Turn the fruit bowl upside down and place candles and beads in your desired location.  Mardi Gras beads are also used to hang the chandelier - adjust the length by using less or more beads.

Step 3: Use black spray paint to bring everything together.

I'll be taking this guy to Ohio next week to be used for my Sister's Halloween party.  I intend on adding a few more details once I arrive.  I'd like to hang spider cut outs (or maybe bats?) at different lengths from the middle.
