9 Jaw-Dropping DIY Chandelier Ideas

I personally love chandeliers, and I think it might have something to do with the fact that my mother has one hanging over her kitchen sink. It seems unexpectedly placed, but looks absolutely stunning when the light shines through and catches the crystals.

If my mother can get away with having one in the kitchen, then you most certainly can get away with having one at your next party.

There really is nothing quite like having a fixture hanging from the ceiling to grab guests’ attention. Plus, you don’t even have to invest in crystals or glass.

Most of these 9 ideas below can all be duplicated with a little do-it-yourself attitude and light elbow grease.
