I would tell you where I saw
it but I just saw the pic awhile back, and only saw it once. I ended up creating
my interpretation of it: Vintage Birthday Paper Chandelier
(scallop brush created by the talented Katie Pertiet from Designer Digitals)
Assemble like so:
choose a book you can use for taking apart…I had an extra church manual.
You could look at that one of two ways…wow that’s harsh that
you would take apart your church manual…OR
you could think, wow, that chandelier has some real important
stuff in it. You can guess what I chose.
diameter of the finished paper circle about 8 1/2″, and
the diameter of the whole chandelier, 22″.
near the ends and on both sides. Then grab a snack…
can put the wire hanger through it and it won’t flop around, although
I did have a few of those. I ended up making 25 circles and there were spaces

At this point, you take a hanger and make it into a circle and tape
the two ends together.
Then string them all on your hanger.
each 1/3 of the way around the hanger to balance it out.
Then tied them all together at the top.
On comes the really fun part. I chose pictures from our life
together, some of our favs. I attached them with
little claw clips. I added a Wedding Picture, and The Kids
out of four)…we had no idea what we were getting ourselves
into for the next 3 years as 2 MORE kids came.
one ended up at the 3×4 size, and put a picture on each side
with double-sided tape.
Then a picture of us at a UTAH STATE,
football game, when we had ONE child.
right onto the antiqued brass ball chain and the copper necklace chain
I had laying around. Arrange the picture so they are at varying heights, and there you have it.
Now go get your craft on…Thanks all for stopping by.XOXO Kirsten
