hey guys welcome back to my channel
and if you’re new to my channel go ahead and hit that subscribe button to see
more home holiday event in DIY decor some of you guys have been requesting
for me to recreate my DIY crystal chandelier that I have in my dressing
room and today I’m doing just that here we go alright guys the first thing I’m going
to do is grab my 12 inch wreath frame and I’m going to remove the first and
last hoop as you can see this are held together by this wire so I’m going to
just grab my pliers and I’m going to pull them open and I’m just going to
take this two out so here I have two tears and to make my
third here I’m going to remove the first hoop from my 6-inch refrain and I’m
basically just going to do the same thing I did with my 12-inch so here I
have the three tears I’m going to be working with and I’m going to use my
transparent cord or my clear string to link them together I’m going to start
with my smaller hoop or my third tier make sure to keep your hot glue scissors
and of course your string handy the first thing I’m going to do is
crisscross the string right here inside the hoop and I’m going to do that by
just you know wrapping the string right here and making a knot so just go around
that a couple of times or make a knot a couple of times make sure it’s tight and
then add a little bit one let me cut this little piece and then add a little
bit of hot glue to keep it in place and then just go around here a couple of
times as well make sure that it’s tight gonna make a knot and you’re gonna cut
again add some glue and then you’re going to do the same across now I’m
going to go around the middle one time so they can support each other and then I’m going to go around it a
couple of times make it tight and then make a knot and if you’re wondering I
guess I should have said this at the beginning and if you’re wondering while
I’m making this crisscross in the middle it is because I’m going to be hanging a
crystal from the middle so I need somewhere to hang it from so it will be
from here and here I’m going to add some glue so you can stay in place and that’s
done now I’m going to piece these two together my next step is to hang my
second tier and to do that I’m going to need a six inch distance between tier
two tier and to do that I’m going to make four 10-inch strings
so this strings will be ten inches long okay and I’m gonna make those ten inches
into six and how do I do that I’m basically going to use two inches to tie
around the same four points that I did previously with my first strings so it’s
basically gonna be an extension of this so this is my 10-inch string and I use
two inches to tie it around here cut and then add glue so what I have here is
eight inches okay so when I add my second tier and I tie it around I’m
going to use two inches of it tie it around cut and then glue so then in
between I will have six inches so that’s how you
make six inches distance from tier to tier here’s what we have so far and right now
is your chance to move around the strings to make sure that they’re lining
up with the one at the bottom before you add the glue to secure it now I’m going
to do the same with a third and last year alright guys so here is the frame
of the chandelier I went ahead and added the links of the hanging basket to the
chandelier because I’m needed to see how you look all together now the next step
is to glue the chain the hanging chain here to the chandelier so it will move
so just get it as straight as possible just try to get it the same distance
apart and just add a little glue there so when you start adding the crystals
it’s not wobbling all over the place now I’m going to take it outside and give it
a couple of coats of this metallic silver spray paint now I’m going to let it dry for about an
hour to make sure that it’s completely dry so I can add the crystals now I’m
going to start adding crystals to my chandelier and I’m going to start by
adding crystals to my bottom tier and the first thing I’m going to do is add a
hanging crystal to the crisscross I made here at the very beginning and I
actually got this big crystal tear right here from a cupcake stand that I have
downstairs and I added it to my hanging crystals here so I’m going to this is a
little bit too long so I’ll say see somewhere around there and this is
pretty easy all you have to do is detach the links from each other and just you
know place it wherever you want it if you like you can add a little bit of hot
glue to the top of the link right here so you can stay in place adding blue – you’re hanging crystal is
totally optional I decided to add blue on this one because this one is always
going to be right here in the middle and it’s going to help me keep everything
Center or balance a little bit but it’s totally optional the chandelier in my
dressing room does not have any glue at all
they’re basically balancing each other so if you do decide to add glue I would
suggest that you wait until all of your crystals are hanging and then you have
placed somewhere where you want them and then you can add glue this is going to
be the lowest hanging crystal on your chandelier right here in the middle and
then everything else from there gets shorter I’m going to start by adding
crystals to the Lord’s here and all you have to do is just you know measure to
see how many hanging crystals you will want so it’s totally up to you but for
me I want six one two three four five six so this is as much as I will like or
as low as I would like so I’m going to add that there so you just simply open
it and just place it right there so that’s six hanging crystals right here
and this bottom tier has four sections so it’s one two three and four so I’m
going to pull apart three for year three four here three four here and three four
here for a total of twelve hanging crystals on my bottom tier for my second tier I chose to use ten
hanging crystals but it’s totally up to you how many crystals you want to see
hanging here and also how many crystals you want to use all around for me it’s
going to be ten hanging crystals and I’m going to use three in each section now
going to arrange the crystals I feel like I should add one more hanging
crystal to each section that looks much much better perfect now for my top tier
I’d chose to use 14 hanging crystals because I think angles will right there
where it stops and I’m going to be using six in each section just to be sure
because I kind of short-handed this one so I’m going to use six on here so you
can look fuller and there it is beautiful and that’s
pretty much that guy’s beautiful chandelier I love it I actually like it
better than the one I have in my dressing room they wanted my dressing
room is a little smaller and I made this one a little bigger so I love it
this project is easy but at the same time it’s a little bit hard and a little
bit you know time-consuming so that’s pretty much what makes it a little hard
just getting on these links out but it’s totally worth it look how beautiful it
is and like I said earlier you can choose to hot glue the links right here
on top if you want to keep it in place but they pretty much balance each other
and it’s absolutely beautiful and again guys you can put as many
hanging crystals as you like the length totally up to you you can totally
personalize it alright I hope you guys enjoy this video and I will see you guys
next time
