25 DIY Chandelier Ideas

We’ve been working on a few home projects this week, until late at night.  Sweet little Connor has asked for almost a year now for his room to finally be painted…..and hooray, it’s almost done.  Just a bit of touch up paint around the edges and we’re ready to actually set up his room.  His mattress has just been laying on the floor and nothing has really had a place.  So, it’s not really his fault when I ask him to clean his room and he just shoves things in little nooks and crannies, is it?  There hasn’t been much order in his room… I guess we’re to blame.  Ack, sorry buddy!  But he is beyond thrilled to finally have a place for everything.  That’s what the weekend holds for us…..moving everything back into his room.


I kinda go back and forth with what I’m working on and sharing here on the blog.  A little bit of sewing, then some home decor, a bit of painting, then I get excited to make baby items, then a few kid clothing pieces, and then back to painting, etc.  Oh gee……in some ways I’m very type A.  In other ways, I’m very type, uh…….Z??


But I’ve been looking around for DIY Chandeliers and have found the cutest ideas around the internet.  (Not for his room, but for other spaces in our home.)  So, I had to share.


Some of them are far cheaper than purchasing a brand new chandelier or fixture.  And sometimes that’s all you need to perk up a room or living space.  Maybe some of these will spark an idea for you too.

    Hello, I was looking specificaly for the Chandelier with the roses. Would you happen to have instructions for that? I would very much appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

    These are just awesome!! A great way to reuse and recycle. Plus save money in the process. I love the blue beaded one especially.

    Very creative ideas.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Awesome pics and ideas for chandeliers here. We cut old beer bottles turning them into drinking glasses, and we also collect sea glass – so have been trying to work out what else we can do with old bottles or sea glass – or both. I think we’ll just have to try our hands at making a chandelier or two. Lovely ideas on this page of yours – thanks!

    Wow such beautiful talent thank you for sharing it with us

    Thanks for featuring my chandelier! It was a lot of work but totally worth it!!

    These are some awesome chandelier ideas! I especially like the wine bottle one. Here is another one that I absolutely LOVE and maybe one day will try to “attempt” to make one… one day… Like when I grow some serious creative courage, lol. And after I get a table saw and all the other stuff required for it.

    Thanks for the great ideas, I’ve been wanting to make a new light, so I might just give that wine bottle light a try hopefully sometime soon.

    1. Maria Wicks says:

      OOPS, forgot to add the link to that light I was talking about, lol. Here it is

    2. Ashley says:

      Oh my word, that is a super cool chandelier. Thanks for another idea! :)
