Boho-Gothic DIY Halloween Chandelier with Starburst Lights
With its explosion of flowers and textures, this project may seem complicated, but creating a starburst lighted branch chandelier is actually incredibly easy! We've placed the steps to create the chandelier base below (there are only 4!). After you've created your chandelier base, the creative options are endless & entirely dependent on your style preference. Choose silk flowers & greenery in your preferred colors and pick out a few decorative accents to hang from the many branches to add even more detail to your design. Once you've decided on your decorative accents, follow step 5 for how to attach them...this might be your easiest & most gorgeous DIY project yet!
How to Make a DIY Halloween Chandelier
- Pull the lighted branches up and outward so that they form a flat disc, leaving just 4 or 5 branches pointing straight down from the middle. The stem should be at the top as you will need it to hang your chandelier.
- Bend the ends of the middle 4 or 5 branches up to create U shapes.
- Continue pulling down a few branches at a time leaving them straight. The middle branches should point straight down and the others should be angled outward gradually toward the top where the remaining branches are still flat.
- When finished your chandelier should look similar to the undecorated picture below.
- From here attach silk flower stems in your preferred color palette to the branches using either floral wire or zip ties. Just make sure not to attach them too tightly or you'll run the risk of pinching the wires inside. You can also bend more of the branch ends into a U shape to hang decorative items like ribbons or fake spiders from them. Use these same decorative accents to make a matching DIY Halloween table centerpiece! (see image below)
Tip: When choosing flowers, select fuller blooms to fill the interior of the chandelier (hydrangeas are perfect for this!) & then use more delicate blooms & interesting textures on the outside of the branches. Don't forget to take a peek from underneath your chandelier to check out the view looking up into it as well!
