Papercraft Chandelier

The actual assembly of this chandelier, though a little tedious, really isn’t too difficult. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Use a cutting machine to X-Acto knife to cut out the pieces.
  2. Fold each of the main pieces along the scoreline.
  3. Layer on all the candle pieces, as well as the dangly paper pieces.
  4. Attach any ribbon strands you’d like to include. I did two strands per section.
  5. Use hot glue to start attaching the sections together, one at a time. I made two sections of four and then attached the two halves together.
  6. Attach some beads to the bottom and/or top to finish it off!

The fun thing about this chandelier is that you can dress it up as much or as little as you want! You can cut out extra dangly pieces and add them to more sections, glue some sparkly gems all around, or just leave it as-is. No matter what, it’s bound to look stunning!

    Your chandelier is adorable! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful creation. My mother gave me a tiny china tea set when I was about four years old, I still have it in its original box. Your chandelier would look perfect paired with the set over a small display table.
