With a few supplies and some creativity, you can make an eye-catching piece that will impress your guests. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to make your own LED chandelier.
Before we begin, let’s gather the supplies you will need for this project:
- A hula hoop
- LED strip light
- Wire cutters
- Clear tape or hot glue
- Skewers or long sticks
- Sanding paper
- Paint and brush (optional)
Step 1: Attach the LED strip lights to the hula hoop
Using your wire cutters, cut the LED strip light to the length of your hula hoop. Be sure to follow the instructions packaged with the LED strip light carefully to ensure a safe and effective connection. Attach the LED strip lights evenly around the hula hoop using clear tape or hot glue.
Step 2: Build the frame of your chandelier
Take your skewers or long sticks and attach them across the center of the hula hoop. Make sure the sticks rest on the hoop to create a sturdy base. Then, take your plywood and using the drill, make a hole in the center. Pass the hula hoop through the hole and attach it to the underside of the plywood using screws.
Step 3: Sanding and painting (optional)
If desired, sand the plywood for a smooth finish. Paint your frame with your preferred color and let it dry.
Step 4: Hang your chandelier
Attach a hook to your ceiling and hang your chandelier using a sturdy cord or chain. Make sure the cord or chain is secure and can support the weight of the chandelier.
By following these simple step-by-step instructions, you can easily make your own LED chandelier that will add unique and modern flair to your living space.
