Giant Polish Chandelier

I had wanted to make a Polish Chandelier since I bookmarked Laura Normandin’s a few years ago and then I was at Tail of the Yak and they had a giant one in the window. I was so inspired it went to the top of my crafting wish list. I’m pretty in love with how it turned out. I went around the house all day saying “I think thats the prettiest thing I’ve ever made”. If you’ve never heard of a polish chandy I noticed Holly did a nice post on it right here. Traditionally they are pretty small but I think these giant ones would be super cool for a wedding. You could hang one over each table. The materials are very cheap but let me warn you they are a tad labor intensive. A DIY is coming later this week.

Thanks to my friends Anne and Meg for coming over and wearing cute dresses! They are the perfect props to the chandelier.
