DIY Christmas Ornament Chandelier

Hi friends. My husband and I finally decided to decorate our house - 2 weeks before Christmas. We've been putting it off because neither one of us wanted to dig through the garage and pull out the boxes with Christmas there was also the issue of getting the toddler to leave the ornaments on the tree. So we weren't in a rush to put up the decorations, but since we are hosting Christmas at our house this year, we decided we probably should do it this weekend....since we are running out of time. Ha.

Here's a fun ornament chandelier I made to make our dining room a little more festive. My camera's battery was dead, so I had to use my cell phone to do photos. (sorry)

All you need is scissors, ribbon, ornaments, and a hair rubber band.

Cut approximately 7 strands of ribbon about 4 feet long. String 2 or 3 ornaments onto each ribbon and tie them at random places.

Gather the ribbon ends

And tie a knot securely onto the hair rubber band. And that's it!

Now find a fun place to hang your chandelier, and admire :)
