The holiday season is the perfect time to create in your home. Try this DIY project by Beth Hunter from Home Stories A to Z to add a little holiday spirit to your home!

Who doesn’t love the look of a winter wonderland? This snowflake chandelier tutorial is so easy and will bring the white wonderland atmosphere to your apartment or house. Would be a great craft to get the kids involved with to help decorate their own space!

Materials Needed:

  • Hanging flower basket
  • White spray paint primer
  • Floral wire (optional)
  • Scissors
  • 4 rolls of white ribbon (6yds each)
  • White paper snowflakes
  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  1. Place floral wire in horizontal rings around the hanging flower basket and prime with white spray paint primer.

    If your flower basket does not already have horizontal rings around it, you may need to create some with floral wire. Simply wrap two long pieces of floral wire around the basket and secure. Spray entire basket with white primer.


  2. Cut ribbon.

    Cut about 3 rolls of ribbon (18 yards) into 9 inch pieces.


  3. Attach ribbon to hanging flower basket.

    Fold the ribbon over the wire about ½ an inch and secure with hot glue. Continue doing this on all four horizontal rings until basket is adequately covered with ribbon.

  4. Glue snowflakes onto ribbon.

    Glue the paper snowflakes onto your ribbons. To save time use larger snowflake cut outs for this project.

  5. Hang basket with white ribbon.

    Secure white ribbon to your basket to hang. Do not use over a light bulb for safety reasons. LED candles/lighting can be placed inside the basket if desired.

Hope you’ve been inspired to create a festive DIY piece for your home this holiday season and make a few memories in the process. Share your DIY projects and home moments with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and be sure to use #HomeMoments!
