cool chandelier made using cardboard
i love chandeliers and to decorate my room i thought i could make one using cardboard. i saw a sticker chandelier at target and thought hum i can make one .. so here is the result i looked on the internet for a pattern but couldn't find one so i used one that look like a chandelier and made some changes to it , i found a super hard cardboard and it was very hard cutting it so i recommend that you use just a normal cardboard box to make it im still in the process of decorating the chandelier so im not done, i hope you like this project.
