Location: San Diego
Time: A few hours
Cost: $30 for hardware, $10 for paint and about $20 for the ornaments (after-Christmas clearance)
Siska found inspiration from a high end blown-glass chandelier and fashioned herself her own version using holiday clearance glass ornaments. Take a look below at her January Jumpstart, from start to finish, with her pics, tools, and instructions and VOTING...
Tell us the tools and resources you used for the project:
- Blown glass chandelier as inspiration (shown left)
- Ikea Kvartil candle holder (frame only)
- Various ornaments on clearance (West Elm teardrops
- Restoration Hardware Crackle glass and clear glass ornaments from Michael's, about 20 in all)
- Thin metal wire and glass paint to add some color to the clear glass ornaments
- Cheap and small pendant light from Ikea to hang amidst the ornaments.
Share step by step instructions for how you completed the project:
I painted the insides of some of the glass ornaments with light blue and white transparent glass paint (Pebeo Vitrea 160 works well). I let the ornaments dry overnight. You can "bake" the ornaments to set the paint but that is optional.
