Chandeliers and Projectors

 I was wandering through The Graphics Fairy's blog and came across this gorgeous chandelier.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it as soon as I saw it.

It's so pretty.
So for my girl's birthday this year I made this piece of wall art for her room.  It was really simple to make and took minimal supplies.
I'm so excited to share it with you today.
She loves it and so do I.
I hope you do too.

Let me share how I made it.
First I printed out a copy of the chandelier from The Graphics Fairy and took it to Staples.
They made a transparency for me for $1.  Love that place!

I had a piece of foam core left over from this project.
I dug through my fabric stash and found a perfect piece of white broadcloth.  
After ironing it, I layed it out on the floor and measured to fit the piece of foam core.

I wrapped the foam core with the fabric and used my stapler to attach the fabric. 

Easy Peasy.

After the fabric was attached, I got out the projector and set it up.

I'm doing this on the floor, but on the table would work too.
I just turned on my favorite show and worked while I watched/listened to it.

I'm using a pink paint pen from Michael's, but I think a pink sharpie would do just the same and probably last a little longer.  There was just enough paint in the pen do make the Chandelier.

Now to hang it up in her room.
I just attached some heavy string to the back of the foam core with a couple of staples.
It doesn't need much because the foam is so light.

Remember the upcycled #10's I made a while ago?  She's still using them for her girly treasures.

I'm almost done with the curtains and bedding for her room.
I will share the full room reveal soon.

Happy Friday!
