Twig chandelier: One of my favorite DIY bloggers, Funky Junk Interiors, thought up this beauty. You basically take an ordinary, dare-I-say-ugly chandelier frame, and you tie twigs to it. How in tarnation could that look attractive? And ugly chandelier with twigs tied to it?! No, it does. The sheer volume of twigs conceals the ugly chandelier frame. All you see is rustic-chic beauty. It actually looks expensive, but it is really a bunch of twigs, an ugly old chandelier, and some spray paint. High five!
Clothespin chandelier: An amateur Dallas-area electrician/handywoman/DIY-er extraordinaire built this modern light fixture out of a tomato cage and a whole lot of clothespins. This idea takes the mid-century drum pendant to a whimsical place.
Tomato cage chandelier: This perfect outdoor chandelier is a delicate, but rustic, addition to a screened-in porch. What fun!
