Warm Weather & Weddings

Nature puts on its best show during spring and summer with an abundance of vivid colors and textures filling our landscapes and gardens. This is the most beautiful and striking time of the year and we wanted our warm weather chandeliers to match the beauty surrounding us during this time. For spring and summer display, fill your starburst lighted branches with a variety of colors and textures to create a beautiful faux floral arrangement during the day that unexpectedly morphs into a visually striking accent light at night. For weddings, add extra shimmer by hanging pearls and crystal accents from some of the chandelier's branches.

Tips for Working with Starburst Lighted Branches

Starbursts are really easy to work with and decorating them is pretty straight forward. We can say this from experience because we've created and decorated a lot of these DIY chandeliers. Through experimenting with a variety of materials, we've also learned a lot about the best and easiest ways to work with this unique lighted branch type. To make sure you have the smoothest experience possible, we've compiled our best tips for decorating starburst chandeliers for you here.

Hang it First - If you plan on decorating your chandelier, you may find it helpful to hang your starburst from somewhere easily accessible so you can walk around it while adding on the decorative elements.

Plan Your Theme - Walking into the craft store with rows and rows of faux flowers and decorative picks can be overwhelming. Before you head to the store, come up with a basic plan for the colors you want to use in your design. Most craft stores sort their flowers by color, so this plan will help you to avoid distraction. That being said, if something unexpected catches your eye in those aisles of flowers, you can always divert from the plan - experimentation and unexpected finds have led to some of our most visually appealing chandelier designs!

Work from the Inside Out - We recommend working from the inside out when adding decorations to ensure even coverage and a beautiful display from all viewing angles.

Use Zip Ties For Long Term Display - zip or cable ties will hold the stems of faux florals in place better than floral wire and ribbons, but you may not be able to easily remove the decorations later. If you decide to use cable ties, make sure you pull them tight enough to hold the decorations, but not so tight that the light wires become pinched.

Full Looks Better - After decorating dozens of chandeliers, we have found that the ones that look the best from up close and far away are those that appear to be overflowing with faux florals and decorative accents. Look for BOGO sales on floral stems at your local craft store - this is the best way to fill out your chandelier without busting your budget!

Balance the Weight of Decorations - If you choose to hang ornaments or other decor items from the U shaped branches of your chandelier, keep in mind that you will need to balance the weight evenly around your chandelier to avoid it from hanging lopsided.
