Wrap chicken wire around the ribs of a lampshade, add some twigs and birdies and voila! A DIY birdcage chandelier!
diy diy diy! Ribbons? Butterflies for a little girls room?
And here’s the $15 chandelier I created to replace the tacky track lighting. I took a paper lighting fixture from Ikea and ripped off the paper to leave the exposed wire ribs. Then I wrapped it all with chicken wire from Lowe’s, added some branches and a few craft store birds from Michael’s craft store. I chose interesting bulbs (since it’s exposed) and voila! Birdcage chandelier. It was inspired by a $$$ version I saw in an antique store and thought… “I could make that.”
