Wooden Ball Chandelier {ideal from Pottery Barn}

Wooden Ball Chandelier I made from old chandelier parts, almost 600 wooden balls, parts from a vanity mirror, and a tuna can.
Here are the chandelier parts and a tuna can wrapped with metal from an old vanity mirror
I added 18 strands of 26 gauge wire to a bottom washer.  The wire was used to thread the wooden balls.
I started adding the balls from the bottom up, going from small to medium to larger.  I thread the wire through the metal, then returning to small balls at the top.  I did this 17 more times.
I added candles and voila!

Thanks for sharing.

annebell writes: It's beautiful! Did the balls come with holes in them already? It looks like it took a lot of patience, but the result is just gorgeous. Good work! Posted: 1:47 pm on March 17th
CottageElements writes: Very creative and looks like it took some time and patience in stringing all those wooden balls onto it. One thing I would wonder about is the wooden balls and the fire of the candles. Could you possible use another medium like glass balls for it? Don't know if they even make then that large, but I think they would look stunning, too! Thanks for sharing!
