How to make an adorable DIY paint swatch chandelier
Here’s a quick and easy guide for a paint swatch chandelier that you can make at home:
1. Cut several circles
In order to make one mobile like in the picture above, you will need ten circles of 2″ diameter and four circles of 1″ diameter.
2. Connect the circles with a transparent thread
Hold one end of the transparent thread. Start with yellow (or anything you prefer), this will be your bottom colour. Tape one of the circles with double-sided tape. The thread should be placed on top of the tape. Then seal the circle with a second circle. You will need to repeat this step for each dangly piece. The spacing was just an eyeball calculation. Small gaps between circles look best to me. The clear thread should be left at the top of the embroidery hoop so that you can attach it there.
3. Apply glue
Hold your hoop. Glue the embroidery hoop with a small dab of hot glue. Use hot glue to attach the clear thread. Let it cool down for a few minutes. Ensure that each strand is spaced evenly apart.
4. Hang it on
You can now hang your decor using a hook on your ceiling. This is a great way to add a bit of personality to your home. Plus, it’s super easy to do! Just find a hook that works for your needs, screw it into the ceiling, and voila! You’re ready to start hanging things up!
You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to make these nursery mobiles! 😉
