DIY TEST TUBE VASE CHANDELIER
24th February 2015
There’s nothing like flowers to get you through a long day, right? We love the simplicity of the hanging test tube vases that have been super popular over in the store, but recently decided to step it up a notch with this floral chandelier, perfect for adding a touch of pretty, and actually so simple to make! Oh and, if you’re trying to decide what flowers to use, perhaps you could match the rug to your flowers?
- 6 x hanging test tube vases
- 3 meters (3.3 yards) of leather cord
- metal circle frame
You can buy the kit for this project here.
1. Cut 2 pieces of string approximately 50 cm (20 in) long. Tie your string onto your metal frame on each side, so a to create a cross style hanger.
2. Cut a piece of string approximately 20cm (8 inches) long, tie one end onto the test tube vase.
3. Tie the other end onto the metal frame. Do this for all 6 vases, ensuring they are balanced around the frame.
4. Trim your flowers using the test tube vase as a measuring tool. Leave your stem slightly longer.
5. Repeat this for all 6 vases
7. Place your flowers into the test-tube vases.
8. Trim any loose ends
9 Tada! Now that it is ready to hang, you can add water into the test tube vases.
