Primative Chandolier

Okay, I believe that if you are a true crafter, you must craft.  After the burlap project, I immediately looked around for another project to pursue.  I have always wanted to do something with my boring, nondescript ceiling light fixture.  Hmm, I do have some clam shells that have been sitting around forever (I got them at the second hand store, of course).  My ceilings are about 8.5 x 9 feet high.  Something to bring it down a bit would be nice.   With my handy drill, I put holes in the shells, and in a coffee can lid, and strung them together.

After vicariously balancing myself on 3 chairs (I know, ridiculous, please do not try at home, get a ladder!),  I was able to reach the fixture.  With a little gold-ish paint on the fixture, here’s the result.  A chandolier!  A bit primative, but it works.
