DIY Snowflake Chandelier

Hot Cocoa Favor Mugs styled by Deets & Things | Black Twine

Materials

  • Assorted snowflakes
  • Heavy duty clear fishing wire
  • Invisible tape
  • Command wire hooks
  • Clear masking tape

Directions

  1. Install three hooks evenly spaced or as many as needed to cover the width of the table on one wall near the ceiling.
  2. Repeat the process on the other side of the room so the hooks match up (you will be stringing wire across).
  3. Let the hooks sit for an hour or as noted on the package instructions to set
  4. String and tie fishing wire tightly across the hooks and further secure the wire around the hook with the clear masking tape if needed.
  5. Cut long pieces of fishing wire and tie them to hang vertically from the horizontal wires (we hung enough to cover the length of the table).
  6. Use the invisible tape to attach the paper snowflakes down the length of the vertical wires. We also recommend varying the number of snowflakes and the size of the snowflakes for each string to create variety.
  7. Cut off each of the access fishing wire at the end of your last snowflake.

Additional Tip: If the horizontal wires begin to droop from the weight, place hooks on the ceiling and relieve the weight by tying wire from the horizontal chandelier to the ceiling hook.

Styling tips

Deets & Things shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

Mix and match different prints/plates of the same color to give your party that extra oomph.

Tip 2

If party styling overwhelms you, start with one piece, like plates and add from there.

Tip 3

Be sure to keep the kids entertained so the adults can enjoy the party too (we brought in snow, had a puppet show, and a s’more bar).

Tip 4

Themed drinks for the adults are always a hit (like snowflake martinis – yum!).

Tip 5

When picking pillows for the tablescape, we recommend keeping a simple color palette but using different textures to add visual interest.
