DIY: Learn How to Make This Quirky Clothespin Chandelier

We're happy to present a post from one of our favorite sites, Stylelist Home.

Ordinary clothespins become the basis for a stand-out chandelier with this Craft Of The Day. This light fixture, made entirely of clothespins, is a quirky, fun way to add oomph and texture to any room. We think it's a great accent to a living room or bedroom, but it would obviously be fitting in a laundry room too! Keep reading for the how to.

What You'll Need:

Keep reading to learn how to make this clothespin chandelier.

  1. With the help of a handy man or electrician, install the light kit and attach the ceiling canopy of your choice.
  2. After donning your gloves, cut out a piece of wire fencing about 9.5" tall. Bend it into a loop, creating a drum-shade shape with a 10" diameter.
  3. Bind the loop using 22-gauge wire.
  4. Spray the wire fencing with white glossy spray paint.
  5. Attach the clothespins to the wire framing in any pattern you'd like (zig-zagging: clipping every other clothes pin on adjacent rows, allowing for more light exposure).
  6. Finally, screw in three heavy-duty ceiling hooks around the ceiling canopy and attach the chandelier with more 22-gauge wire. Voila!
