We’re so excited, and we just can’t hide it, we’ve got the FEVER, disco fever that is- and you will too. Get ready to ~FREAK OUT~! This DIY wood clothespin chandelier is gunna take you to Funky Town and make you want to kick it old school, Dancing Queen (or King) style. It’s simple and modern by day, and takes you back to the 70’s at night with a subtle, warm yellow light creating a pleasing ambiance. A similar fixture would cost an upwards of $90 at a minimum. So, not only is this light fixture easy on the eyes, but it’s easy on your wallet too.
Gather your supplies and follow the instructions below on how to make your own!
- Homz® wood clothespins (we used two packs, however depending on your design you may need more)
- a 15 foot hanging light cord
- lightbulb (preferably vintage, sized to the cord)
- a wire cage for pendant lighting
- chicken wire (amount depends on the size of chandelier you choose to make, and keep the wire that is used to wrap the bundle, you will need it!)
- wire cutters
- needle nose pliers
- gold spray paint (optional)
Step 1: Head to your local retailer or jump on Amazon and purchase our Homz® wood clothespins, and purchase and/or gather the remained of the items on the supply list so you can get started.
Step 2: Screw in the lightbulb to the hanging light cord. Then screw the cage around the light bulb.
Step 3: Measure your chicken wire around the circumference of the wire cage. Overlap one extra row of wire, and cut the chicken wire.
Step 4: Take the chicken wire outside, or to an open area and spray paint it if you choose to do so.
Step 5: Take the pliers and wire that you saved from the bundle of chicken wire. You will secure the wire surrounding the light shut by weaving the additional wire.
Step 6: You will place the clothespins on the cage that you made in whatever pattern you choose!
Step 7: When you’re clothes pinned out, find the perfect spot and it’s ready to be hung!
Groovy, ain’t it?! And for the cost of this project, retail stores can’t touch this!
