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.
