~diy beaded chandeliers~

I know you all have seen this fabulous chandelier at Pottery Barn, with a price tag of $499.00.
Not a bad price really, and it's big, really big.
 If you don't want to spend that kind of money though and are a crafty hands on kinda person, check out this tutorial over at Gus and Lula.
Be prepared though, she used around 3,000 wooden beads on this bad boy!
 Isn't it fabulous?
 If you like this look but don't want to spend your summer stringing beads while everyone else goes to the beach, then check out this cute idea from Tatertots and Jello.
 Just simply adding a few wooden beads to a store bought chandelier gives you that same look! 
I am thinking about tackling one for our master bedroom.
Anyone else have any tips or tricks for me?

Lovely. I bought string beads for our Christmas tree many years ago and at the time they came in both red and natural. I picked red but the natural looked so much like the strings in your first inspiration photo.

Beautiful! We've had one in my shop a couple of times…they always sell very quickly! We've also had the sconces and I loved them! Sometimes i feel like it's a DIY when the strands come off during shipping! LOL! It's a bit difficult to get all back together but we do and then they're gone! thanks for sharing this!

I fell in love with this the first time that I saw it but I am thinking those wooden garlands that you put on Christmas trees would work perfectly!

This is a practical way of personalizing your lights! You just need to be resourceful and creative…oh, and you also have to be patient! 3,000 beads! I would want to see it at night time, though. I wonder how the light would bounce off those beads.
