From Issue Four of Sweet Magazine this super fun DIY Book Page Paper Chandelier is a great idea for decorating a party. We love it for Alice in Wonderland Parties or any party that features a book character. Replace with comic book pages for any Marvel or DC Comic party, or use as a sweet rustic detail at a baby shower which is where this easy DIY was born. Follow the steps to make your own paper chandelier thanks to the creative folk at Paper & Style Co., and share the results with us on Instagram or Facebook using #sweetmagazine.
DIY Book Page Paper Chandelier
1 old wire coathanger
Old book pages*
Double sided tape
Foliage or flowers*
Using your pliers, twist open the coat hanger and carefully shape into a hoop. Secure the ends by twisting around each other.
Cut three lengths of string to your desired length and tie evenly around your hoop. Tie the tree loose ends together.
Add a length of double sided tape around the inside of your hoop, and stick the book pages to the outside. Continue all the way around your hoop.
*If you can’t bring yourself to take pages from a book. Photocopy or source old book pages online, print them out and age by brushing with a little brewed tea. Don’t let your pages get too wet or the ink from the printer will run.
*Use floral tape to add foliage or flowers to your chandelier.
