Dollhouse Miniature Trash to Treasure Chandelier




This week's Trash to Treasure project is super easy to make like all Trash to Treasure projects should be. One really nice thing about this one is that it is easy to adapt either smaller or larger (I think Barbie 1/6th scale is probably the largest though) because the fishing hooks come in lots of sizes and so do chandeliers. If you do go smaller in scale you might need to find an alternative to the beads for the globes on the fixture.



The hooks I used this week were size 8 and they came 4 in the package for under $2. The beads are just some cheap plastic ones I got at Walmart several years ago. 







As for hanging your fixture I came up with this of course it will only work if you have a floor covering in the room above that you can lift up (like carpet). Make a hole in the ceiling where you want the fixture to hang from. Then thread the chain up through the hole to the floor of the room above. Use a staple to attach the chain to the floor. I made holes for the staple with a push pin then put the staple through with my fingers. Cover this with tape and lay the carpet back down over it. This would be great in a room box too.
