Hey there! Let me guess…; you love the look of gorgeous, upscale chandeliers and light fixtures, but you don't love the price tags? Yep, I can relate. That's why I tend to make my own light fixtures, including this DIY chandelier. You seeunique wedding gifts couple, I had fallen in love with wood bead chandeliers that are popular right now, but I was just not willing to spend hundreds of dollars on one. So, I decided how to make my own DIY chandelier from wood beadsand today I am going to show you how I did it! I have to tell you, I'm kind of in love with it. Read on to learn how to make your very own! This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

1)You will be working with a3 inch and 10 inch hoop first. Remove the outer hoops–;for now, you will work only with the inner hoops.

2) Thread your quilting needle with quilting thread, being sure to double up and knot it at the end.

3) Loop the thread over the 3 inch quilting hoop.

4) String your beads onto the thread. The pattern is: 10 small beads followed by 1 medium bead/1 small bead x 12. Finish each row with a medium bead, so that you have a total of 13 medium beads.

5) Tie the end of your strand to the 10 inch quilting hoop with a double or tripleknot. BE SURE NOT TO ALLOW YOUR STRANDS OF BEADS TO CROSS OVER EACH OTHER (I learned that lesson the hard way).

6) Repeat until the top of your DIY chandelier is as full as you like. Then cut away excess thread. This is what your DIY chandelier will look like at this stage.

1) Grab your second 3 inch hoop and remove the outer hoop.

2) Thread your quilting needle with quilting thread, being sure to double up and knot it at the end.

3) Loop the thread over the 3 inch quilting hoop, just as you did above.

4) String the beads onto your thread using the following pattern: 1 small, 1 large. Repeat the pattern for a total of 5 times.

5)Tie the end of your strand to the same 10 inch quilting hoop with a double or tripleknot. The 10 inch hoop will sit above the 3 inch hoop you are working with, which will serve as the bottom of the chandelier. AGAIN, BE SURE NOT TO ALLOW YOUR STRANDS TO CROSS OVER EACH OTHER. Below is a photo of how your DIY chandelierthis stage–;bear in mind, you will be working with it upside down at this point.

6) Add as many strands as you like.

1) Add a drop of super glue to each knot. This will help ensure that your knots do not come loose.

2) Grab your OUTER hoops and paint some wood glue along the inside of each one. Then, secure them in place over the inner loops, tightening them into place.

3) After your wood glue has dried, remove the screw from each of the outer hoops. Then use cutting snips to remove the part of the hardware that sticks out. You can see in the photo below that we had snipped one piece off already.

1) Use a small drill bit to drill two very small vertical holes along each side of the TOP hoop.

2) Run wire through one hole and circle the wire around the cord of the pendant light. Then thread the wire through the opposite hole.

3) Wrap electrical tape below the circle of wire around your cord–;this will ensure that the light does not slip down. I covered my black electrical tape with some gold washi tape to make it less noticeable. Be sure also to wrap secure the ends of your wireby wrapping them. This is what the top of your DIY chandelierwill look like when you look down into it.

That's it! You are ready to hang your wood bead chandelierand admire your handy work! Check out the finished DIY chandelier. We hung ours in our guest room to replace an outdated flush mount fixture. We are in love with it!
