This "natural bling" chandelier is sure to have guests oohing and ahhing... and then eating.

We spotted this DIY over on OnceWed.com. Etsy seller Laurie Cinotto, who also handmakes boutonnierres, has a great tutorial. You'll have to order the supplies (bailing wire, seam binding, rock candy, and ribbon), but once you have them, it's pretty easy.

Here are the basics:

1. Cut wire and bend into a Shepard's hook shape.
2.Stick the wire into the rock candy, secure with glue. (If you plan on eating them, you can use edible sugar glue.)
3. Wrap a ribbon around the seam, and tie into a bow.
4. Use the hook to hang from branches, a garland, or a wire armature.
