Shockingly, this project won for the week. (In spite of my son telling me it looked like a blue alien that might try to grab him...)
May I just start off by saying that I normally don't have a tablecloth hanging from my patio cover, but I could not get my "Outdoor Craft" to show up in photos without creating a blank background of some kind.
Blue Twig Chandelier. As the weather gets warmer, it's nice to be able to hang out on the patio, host brunches, etc. I like to pair the whimsical with the traditional when it comes to setting a table, so here we are.Gathering up sticks and branches, I spray painted them with Rustoleum's Lagoon blue. When dry, I used 28 gauge wire and hot glue to make a base with the larger branches, then began to layer on the sticks. Once I had a shape that I liked, (and got the darn thing level) I wired on votive cups and used Hubby's fishing line to hang little beads.
(Note to self: return his reel to the tackle box...)
do believe me when I say there usually isn't a tablecloth hanging there, right? Right...?
