Dollhouse Chandelier

I’ve been wanting to make my daughter a chandelier for her dollhouse for awhile now. So I finally found the materials I have had in mind to do this project. I found these styrofoam cone shaped twine things at a craft store and I decided these would make perfect for the chandelier as I had been imagining something that was like a willow tree branch with lights. Then I found some colorful beautiful beads that I decided would be perfect to hot glue onto these cones for the dollhouse chandelier and here it is! Here is how I did it…..

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

With the styrofoam cone branches I intertwined them together. Then with a mixing bowl I poured the beads in there and got the hot glue gun ready and started the gluing and dipping process.

Then, I hot glued each cone. What I did was I set all the beads in a mixing bowl and had the hot glue gun ready then hot glued a little bit of the cone dipped it into the bead bowl and repeated until entire cone was covered in beads. It took about 5-10 minutes per cone to dip in the beads. Then once the glue had dried I carefully took the leftover hot glue strings hanging on the cones and slowly but carefully peeled them off each cone for a finished look.

Next, I re-arranged the cones once more to how I wanted them to look and finished up this project by wrapping twine around the green branches to hang in the dollhouse.
