DIY String Chandelier – Perfect for Wedding Decor

DIY String Chandelier

When I came across this DIY idea, I thought it would be a perfect mix for wedding lighting. All you need to create these string chandeliers is corn starch, glue, warm water, twine, Vaseline. For the instructions, you can find those here. The great thing about this DIY idea is that you can blow up the balloons to different sizes to create a variety of orbs.

A few ways to incorporate lighting with these string chandeliers:

  1. Leave a hole at the top to fit a light into it (like the IKEA HEMMA cord set)
  2. Hang them from string lights
  3. Hang them next to paper lanterns which have lights inside
