Ok so before you start this project know that this is time consuming! It is a lot of work and it takes a while to complete but I think the results are worth it.
The first step that I did was sandwich three sheets of wax paper in between two sheets of parchment paper. I used 4 boxes of wax paper but it depends on the size of lamp shade you use.
Wax paper ironed together.
Next you want to fold the wax paper like a fan and hole punch the row, I used 1 3/4 in hole punch.
I then counted the circles in groups of 22.
Then you want to sew the circles together. I did this by feeding the circles on after the other. At first it might be a little tricky but you will get the hang of it.
Ok so when you buy your lamp shade make sure you get on with vertical wire along with the round top and bottom wire. I did not do this and my husband had to add wire in between the top and bottom.
I also added a middle rung so the chandelier would have three layers.
This chandelier turned out great and I am very happy with the results. If you are thinking about doing this I would definitely look at a thrift store for a lamp shade. I found mine for a few bucks. Remember to find one with wires connecting the top and bottom wire.
