My Pumpkin Chandlier !!

Well, here it is..My pumpkin chandelier I promised I would make..What do you think? I love it! I think it looks better than Miss Martha Stewart's! Mainly cuz I made it all by myself!

A close up and I am so proud of it! I made some small hammered pumpkins with candles from Joanne fabrics to put in them..they look expensive but nope..

I bargain shopped this whole is really easy! I have to admit though i bought the materials not really sure how i would execute it..but the result is beyond what i ladies must try this you can do it!

I also thought if a person didn't want to make it as a chandelier you could pop a vase in the middle add a candle in it and wa-la a centerpiece!

This is the run down..wreath@ Walmart $2.97, leaf bundle $3.00, raffia $ 1.47 moss $1.77
pumpkins $1.00 each, paint $5.77 candles from Joanne fabric reg.$4.99 on sale w/coupon $2.99!
Can you believe it? not to bad..i think! listen you can do this with a ready made wreath..but the satisfaction of doing this yourself is priceless!

It's beautiful! You did a fantastic job! I love that it's DIY. I have something similar, but I just added leaf garland to an existing candle-chandelier. Way to bargain shop!

Thank you so much for sharing! :)

Happy Fall!

wee fairy buttercups! ya did it!

Nice as I so loved the 'hammered' look on pumpkins and I added it to my porch pineapple (cement) and wow, did it turn out nice all because of you.

So do tell, jute or twine? Maybe can I suggest a small chain here in place of the other with open flame.

Oh by the by.. still happen to have a cupcake around for me?

I LOVE THAT! Are you using it in your house or barn or? Don't you love making things the bargain way? thats the only way I do things too. Buy it on sale or not at all is my motto!

Your wreath is so much pretter than Martha's. I love the color of the pumkins. I'll be going to Wal-Mart today to check out the candles from Paula. Thanks for the tip!

I saw this on Martha Stewart; I started this for my back porch. I have not completed it yet due to a big wedding I am doing this week.
I work 8 hours a day too.
Yours turned out so cute. I love it.
