Quick and Easy Christmas Chandelier

I’m hope you’re all staying healthy this season. I’m just now coming up for air after two weeks with a nasty bug. I think maybe I’d better get a flu shot! If you think you have no time for holiday decorating, have I got a simple idea for you today! It only takes a few minutes to turn an ordinary light fixture into a gorgeous Christmas chandelier!

All you need is a hanging light fixture, fishing line or thread, and Christmas ornaments. I got mine for half off at the after Christmas sales last year. It’s too late for that this year, but you can plan ahead for next year. When you see those those ornaments go on sale, snag some extras!

This is super simple. All you do is tie a piece of thread or string to two Christmas bulbs — one on each end of the string — and loop them over the top of the light fixture. You want the bulbs to hang at various lengths, so be sure to vary the lengths of the string.

This is also a really good time to pull out a duster and get to that really fun job of dusting your light fixtures! It’s always fun to find out how much dirt is up there. (But, I’m sure you all do that regularly, so I’m the only one who gets surprised with a big mess, right?)

I hang ornaments from the light fixture above our kitchen table and from the chandelier in our front entryway.  It really brightens up the house, it’s inexpensive, and it’s quick! It doesn’t get much better than that!

Just a friendly warning. For obvious reasons, this project should only be attempted near covered light bulbs. Please don’t attempt this project by hanging string on or next to exposed bulbs! Nobody wants a fire!

  3. I love your version of this pretty idea! I’ve been hanging frosted snowflakes from my own dining room light for years – along with red ribbon – very festive! I might have to add a few shiny ornaments like yours. They would really sparkle at night!
    LOL on the dusty light fixtures! I think I love Halloween so much because I call dust part of the decorations! :)

  4. So pretty! I love this simple and easy idea! I don’t have any lights like that in my house, but If I did I would totally do this!

  6. I love this idea! It brings such magic to the room!

  7. I do this too! It’s so fun and easy. I love the way it quickly dresses up a place. I usually do the ornaments that I want to hang but I don’t want broken since we still have little ones. It’s safer than the tree!

  8. I love this idea! It looks really beautiful–too bad I have no light fixtures that would work. I’ve been wanting to switch our dining room light to a chandelier type, maybe I can convince my husband to do it before Christmas?
