crepe ginkgo + wood spring chandelier video tutorial

You Light Up My Life

Thank you to our friends at WoodpeckersCrafts, who inspired this project. With these natural wreath forms, you can create something unique to display at a party for an eye-catching centerpiece. Or hang it in the corner of your room to bring nature indoors.

The combination of the overlapped wreaths and the bead details makes this chandelier a sleek, modern display for any paper flower or leaf arrangement. We’d love to see your version of this DIY project, so be sure to share photos in our crafters community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.

To assemble the chandelier: 

Watch the video above for full details ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Start with a 13″ wooden wreath form and a 10 1/2″ wooden wreath form that fit nicely inside each other.
  2. Using the natural binding wire, string the two wreaths together at the top hole of each form, then use the excess wire to create a hanging loop for the finished chandelier.
  3. Place both light batteries on each side of the inner wreath and wrap them to hold them in place with more binding wire.
  4. Wrap the wired fairy lights around the inner wreath, then the second string around the outer wreath.
  5. Cover the batteries with small clusters of 5 finished crepe paper ginkgo leaves for each side.
  6. With hot glue gun, attach a 1/2 inch ball bead over every hole of the wreath, on both sides, and both wreaths.
  7. Hang where you can open the two wreaths to form an X if looking from the top. The binding wire should hold it in place. It is now ready to attach the ginkgo leaves.

Note: For this DIY project, I made four crepe paper ginkgo branches to top my wood chandelier. 

You can find tools and materials listed on the right hand side at the top of this post, where you can download a free version of the PDF or SVG cut file. The PDF template lists the number of leaves for each branch, which you can cut from the crepe paper.
