April Unwrapped: “April Showers” Paper Chandelier
A paper chandelier is a great way to spruce up a corner of your bedroom or office. While this project might seem like a daunting task, the work is definitely worth it!
3 brass rings (different sizes)
Paper circles (a LOT of them)
Tombow Aqua Liquid glue
1. Lay out the circles by lining up 6 circles per column. You’ll have 30 columns in total.
2. Cut individual sets of string and place next to each column of circles.
3. Glue a line down each column of circles using the pen tip of the Tombow glue.
4. Lay the string atop the glue and lightly press to secure.
5. Repeat with every column and let dry (about 30 minutes).
6. Using the wire, create the shell of the chandelier. It’s just a shell, so don’t worry if it isn’t perfect!
7. Loop the wire around each ring when securing.
8. Fix the ribbon to the top layer. The shell should look like this once complete.
9. Starting at the bottom, tape each strand to the ring to secure.
10. The bottom ring should have 8 paper strands.
11. Move up to the second ring. This ring will have 10 paper strands.
12. Almost there! The top ring will have 12 paper strands.
