Lighten Up The Room With A Paper Chandelier #ArtTuesday


Make this super cool paper chandelier for under $15. via instructables

Listen, we’ve all been there. We’ve all walked into Anthro and gone weak in the knees contemplating how all their gorgeous items would look in our living spaces. We’ve meandered over, timidly grasped hold of the price tag, taken a deep breath, and been shocked at the sheer number of digits listed in its price. And like that, the dream has been snatched out from under us, leaving us dazed and bewildered.

I propose an alternate plan to that bank heist you were planning. How about we make a $1000 paper chandelier for, say, less than $15? Who’s with me?

You will need:
Matte board 1/16th or thicker (or acrylic) x2
Copper tape
8 LEDs
2 3V coin batteries
2 coin battery holders
Small swatch of Conductive Fabric

Laser cutter (or x-acto knife if you’re feeling it)
Soldering iron
