Crafts To Get Excited About: Tinsel Edition
On day 625 and day 1,542 of self quarantine I scrolled on Pinterest for hours. Not really but sometimes this self isolation from the world, there isn't much of a concept of time. It either flys by or stands still. It's an unsettling feeling, but on a lighter note I wanted to share with you one of my Pinterest finds.
In college, I (Darby) was very into tinsel. I used it a lot as inspiration and then physically with my senior fashion thesis my final year at art school. I guess you can say my love of tinsel followed me well into adulthood. Lately I've been interested in how I could include it into my interior decor. I found an image of a tinsel chandelier (pictured above). That instantly think "how can I have this? Can I make it? Is this easy to make myself?"
It turns out there is a place to buy this tinsel chandelier for only $25?! That definitely a bargain for one of the coolest lighting fixtures I've ever seen. So if you want to buy it we understand. But if you are looking for a crafting project to help pass some time, we found a DIY chandelier blog post. We are thinking about trying it and of course substituting tinsel instead of fringe used in the post.
