Rope Light Chandeliers for the Holidays

Rope Light Chandeliers for the Holidays

We clipped this idea from an old issue of ReadyMade Magazine. As the holidays approach, we're revisiting the Rope Light Chandelier as a great decoration for a New Year's Eve party. We'd like to see clusters of these hanging in a window or an archway.

The ingredients add up to about $50: rope lights, extension cord, zip ties, and ceiling hooks. The extension cord acts as the core, while the rope lights are basically coiled around the core like a rubberband ball, using zip ties to secure the lights along the way. It's important to use low wattage lights so that the final product doesn't overheat. For the step-by-step instructions, click here. For more links to ReadyMade lighting projects, click below.
