Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls (10)
Posted by: Cathy on May 22, 2012 Tagged in: Untagged I just loved this Paint swatch chandelier! What a wonderful idea and those paint swatches you can pick up for free. You can use an old lampshade and use the frame or pick up an old one from the thrift store. You can also purchase them new in art and crafts shops but recycling makes this project more fun. These are the materials you'll need: - paint swatches in the same tones or you can use multi-colored if you prefer - wire frame from old lampshade (this will hang upside down) - large circular hole puncher - cellotape - cotton thread - scissors Start punching your circles from your paint swatches. Lay out your paint medallions, coloured side down, in the desired order. Turn your lamp shade upside down and fasten it somewhere where it can hang freely. The full tutorial can be seen here.
