Beautiful and colorful, this DIY test tube chandelier will surely be a great talking point for family and friends!

Science had been my favorite subject when I was a student. I looked forward to the days where we’d do experiments inside the laboratory. Admittedly, I have broken a lot of beakers and test tubes back then. But I didn’t know that the test tubes had other uses. Fast forward to today, I see that they’re being used for decorative purposes.

Uncomplicated and easy to make, you can easily do this with kids.

Seeing test tubes used on chandeliers reminded me of the good old days. I saw this really cool DIY project and I thought of giving it a try. My daughter and I worked on it one rainy day and finished the same day. She now has a beautiful test tube chandelier inside her room.

This chandelier will make perfect accents in a plain room. It’s also a potential talking point for guests who are coming over!
