CLARA SUMSION

It's time to step up your DIY game—in a big way. Elevate your craftiness from shelves and paper plants to something even more ambitious, like an entire hanging chandelier. Don't be nervous—thanks to lifestyle blog , this inexpensive do-it-yourself fixture (inspired by an $800 !) comes with extensive instructions. You've got this.

While the blog states that making this creation is a bit time consuming, we can all agree that the end product is well worth the hard work. And who doesn't love a challenge? Oh, and the total cost of supplies adds up to a mere $170—which is chump change when you compare it to the original asking price. Score!

Once you've got all of your materials together, like beads, metal rods, quilting hoops, and a long chain (see the full list ) you'll be all set to begin. The most confusing part of the whole DIY is knowing exactly what order to string each bead size in to create the perfect row, but the blog's detailed diagram for this part of the project gives you all the info you need to put together a masterpiece.
