Spring Chandelier – Die Cut Flowers and Vines

I can officially say that spring is here (and not a moment too soon)! To celebrate the advent of this beloved season, I’ve created an extra special paper craft that I’m thrilled to be sharing with all of you. Get ready to get crafting, and make this beautiful, spring chandelier!

Most of the designs I’ve been making lately involve a lot of precision and attention to detail. This week, I got the urge to create something more organic, and when I saw an unused embroidery hoop just laying around in my craft room, the idea to make this spring chandelier just popped into my head!

Supplies

How to Make

1. Use your cutting machine or scissors, along with my template, to cut out all of the vine and flower pieces.

 

2. Use a bone folder or the edge of your scissors to curl the flower petals and leaves on the vines.

Then, attach your flowers to make a slight cone shape by glueing the small round tab to the inside of your flower. (I chose to have my flower petals flare outward like plumerias, but you could flip them to curve inward if you’d like them to look more like crocuses.)

 

3. Next, use your needle/thread to string your flowers together, tying knots at intervals in order to keep them in place.

 

4. Attach some twine/hemp to your embroidery hoop (this will be used to hang your piece).

Finally, tie your strings of flowers around the hoop, and attach your vines with some hot glue.

I had so much fun making this project! My favorite part was curling all of the flower petals and leaves. I don’t get to shape my paper like that very often, so it was fun to turn essentially pretty flat pieces into really unique shapes, all their own.

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome spring projects available on my blog!

Have fun making your own spring chandelier! Where would you hang an elaborate piece like this?

    These are really pretty. Very “Welcome Spring”! Wouldn’t this idea look lovely at a wedding with a lot of them hung all around? Or maybe a Bridal shower? Love it!

    I am sending a care package to an international student who couldn’t go to her home country because of the travel restrictions. She’s basically alone on campus. This will be the perfect addition to my package! Thank you for this project.

      Aww, that is so sweet! I feel so bad for that girl—thanks for looking out for her and lifting her spirits! We all need a little of that right now.
