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.
