Chandelier Love, updated chain wrap

 
Good morning! Chandelier love and oh so frugal me!
 
This year, I will be "shopping" at my house! Get my drift? If you are like me you probably have things around the house that you can utilize and never thought of it or had the time.
 
I had made strips of fabric a while back, tea dyed them and stamped on them for tie backs and such.  I had some blank muslin strips as well, so.....





 
 
You know Ballard's, and all those beautiful online places that charge an arm and a leg for stuff? I love love love Ballard's but  I just cannot afford it, being retired, so I decided to make my own "hanging chandelier cover" to cover up that bronze chain and ceiling hardware that I have had to look at for a long time. I felt it drew my eye up to the ceiling with the bronze colour.
 
I lightly wrapped several layers of the strips, three at once, around the chain and just tucked it in the ends for easy removal and washing when they get dusty. I also painted out the hardware on the ceiling! I wanted that creamy beige look with no darkness. 
 
I love how it turned out, happy now :) What do you think?
 
On to the next! Small projects look out! :) xo Kat
 
Happy days to you! xo
