When I first saw the post for this DIY on Design Sponge, I wont lie, I totally made an assumption. I saw it and was like Oh My! That looks like its going to be hard! As I read through the DIY tutorial, I quickly realize, it totally wasnt hard at all! I think thats a sign of a good project gone right! Something that looks much more labor intensive then it really is, read: Looks like a million bucks!
While Anthropologie is amazing, they often carry things that are a bit more then I would personally care to spend on certain things now & again. It seems that the gals at Design Sponge share my opinion on that as well. Dont get me wrong, I love me some Anthropologie!! As it were, the Rhododendron Chandelier was the object of attention in this particular case. The gals thought it was lovely, but wanted to find a way to DIY it & quite frankly, I thank them for that!
As you read through the steps you realize what is done to achieve the overall look is nothing more then perfectly picked cupcake wrappers & a hot glue gun! Well ok maybes it slightly more involved then that, but you get my gist. These would make a superb addition to any reception, even dance floor. Grab a couple of your girls & get to gluing! Just think, twilight time of day & these optical illusion orbs glowing in the air! I love it!
