Advent Calendar 2012 - Decorate your chandelier

Decorating your chandelier can be sooo easy!

1 garland - I used a wispy greenery strand that has pinecones and red berries already on it. 
2 pkgs of bells from the Dollar Tree
natural colored crochet cotton to hang bells

lay the strand of greenery on top of the arms of your chandelier. 
My ends overlapped about 6" but seriously it's hard to tell. 
Adjust the wired branches until it pleases you.

Thread some of the crochet cotton through the bells.
Hang at different lengths.

Remember that your handiwork will mainly be seen from below,
but if you have low ceilings, then make any adjustments at eye level too.

If your strand doesn't have red berries or pine cones, you can always add them.
Pine cones can be wired on.
Red berries can be purchased and just laid on top of the garland.

Step back and be pleased!
