Don’t forget about your chandeliers this Christmas. They are just begging for a little something extra. Really, you don’t have to go over the top on this one unless you really want that to be your statement piece. This year I went pretty light, but I think it really adds to the overall decor. Check out my Christmas chandelier decorations ideas.

I have never decorated this chandelier before, but this year my daughter said we should. So, I did. The tree was lined up with the chandelier and I had snow flakes and other snowy items on it, so I thought ice cycles would add to the theme. I found these modern looking ice cycles at Hobby Lobby and used a craft “fishing line” to hang them with. I found the “fishing line” at Michaels in the floral area, but I’m sure you can find it any where.
First, I decided that I wanted tiers of ice cycles with the longest hanging ones to be in the middle and shortest to be around the outside. I started on the outside and tied the end of the “fishing line” to an ice cycle and then held it up to see how long I wanted it to hang. Then, I cut it from the spool and tied a loop. This way I can take them back off and use them again next year without having to cut them off the chandelier. I used my first string to measure the rest cutting them all as close to the same length as I could.
Next, I did the inside tiers the same way – holding them up to measure. This was super fun for the kids to stand on the ladder and hang these ice cycles. I think it looks great with our tree.
DINING ROOM CHANDELIER
This is a pretty obvious chandelier to decorate, especially if you are doing a centerpiece or runner on your dining room table. I think it really adds intimacy to your space. Last year I added greenery and hung red and gold balls. This year I went with a more snowy, white color scheme.
Again, I used my “fishing line” and held up my balls to see how long I wanted my strings. These turned out to be more varying in length, but that’s okay. I still like it. I think it feels modern and light. It’s not too over the top, but it adds to the snow them. I used a big container of white and clear balls from Hobby Lobby. I also used some on the table to tie it all together.
Well, that was super easy and I hope you get inspired to decorate a chandelier or two this Christmas.
