I am pretty darn excited to be linking up for the first time with Katie, one of my favorite bloggers. I'm the laziest 'pinner' ever, hardly ever doing anything on my dozens of Pinterest boards. Until now, that is! I spotted an amazing chandelier made of wax paper on Pinterest a few months ago and thought it would be an awesome addition to the decor at Kayla's wedding. There was no real tutorial out there, so it looked pretty simple and we figured we'd give it a try!
Little did I know- it would not be quite as simple as we thought.... and incredibly time consuming. There... you can't say I didn't warn you!
Oh, and the more hours you spend punching out circles from wax paper, taping circles to fishing wire, and attaching them to the spray-painted wooden ring? The more weird things will get. Again- consider yourself warned.
This project took probably close to 10 hours over time- I kid you not. Kayla and I punched holes for hours and hours it seemed like. Since those handy little circle-punchers aren't really made for wax paper, it was a lot of trial and error on how many sheets we could cut through, and what method worked best.
Thankfully, although time consuming- this is really all you need for the project. I used the hot glue to secure some of the knots once we were ready to hang it up.
Oh, and preferably a husband that will help you out when you feel like your fingers are about to bleed ;) Thanks, Jared!
