Want to make a DIY Rose Petal Chandelier of your very own? With just a few rose petals and a sewing machine, this is great for any teen or kid room. It would even be great as DIY wedding décor. Wanna know how to make it? Read on to find out how!
I made this when we decided to transition my teen daughter’s room from a little girl’s room to a teen girl’s room. This was an easy project and when really well with the other décor, including the string art and watercolor hoop art we made.
She’s always wanted a chandelier in her room, so so when I figured out how to make her dream come true, I jumped on it!
Chandeliers add a lot of drama to a room (and isn’t that all teen girls!), but they’ve really come a long way from the more formal ones. Believe it or not, you can make a beautiful chandelier with mason jars!
How to Make a Rose Petal Chandelier:
Supplies needed to make this chandelier from rose petals:
- 3 different-sized wooden embroidery hoops (just the inside portion)
- Fishing line
- Faux rose petals. You can get your rose petals at the dollar mart as well.
- Sewing machine
- White acrylic paint
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Elmer’s glue
Remove the inside rings of the embroidery hoops. Paint them white with the acrylic paint. When they are dry, tie them together in a chandelier style, with the smallest on the bottom. Then, add three strands to hang it from the ceiling when you are done.
Using the petals and sewing machine, sew each petal into strands, leaving a little space between each petal.
I sewed them in strands of 9 petals each.
This makes it more “flowy” when you get done. Your sewing does not have to be perfect. I tried getting them all in the same direction, but they are not all the same. No one is going to climb up and look at this once you have it hanging from the ceiling.
Sew lots and lots of strands together. I used around 400 petals in total. Yep, 400. Sew your little heart out.
I took the rings and painted them white. Then tied them up with a fishing line like this…
Add three strands of fishing line at the top to hang it up when you are done. Then, glue on your petal strands, starting at the bottom.
I looped each strand by folding the top petal over and glued it to the second petal. Actually I glued each one twice. Yes, I used hot glue and regular glue on each one. May not be necessary but I have extra insurance.
The secret to holding this while you are gluing on your strands of petals?
Continue gluing until the chandelier is filled and you have the look you want! I would glue some on, then go sew some more, then glue more on, sew some, etc. That way I did not end up with any extra strands at the end. No sense in doing any extra sewing!
Hang from a hook on your ceiling. I used the fishing line tied in a knot at the top and just slipped it over the hook a few times. I am so pleased with how it turned out!! This could be for any girl’s room. Baby to a teenager!
Y’all let me know if you make one and send pics! I would love to see em!
