Do you remember when chandeliers were only appropriate if you live in a super fancy house?
Well, the times are changing and that isn’t the case any longer. Truthfully, the more rustic a chandelier looks the more ‘in’ it is right now.
So if you’ve always wanted a chandelier, know that the sky is the limit. You can make them yourself, put them anywhere you want (even the bathroom), and your home will be all the rage.
Which is why I’m bringing you some of the coolest chandelier ideas available on the internet. Some will show you how to make the chandelier, while others will just be for inspiration.
But I’m sure you’ll find at least one that you love.
Beautiful DIY Chandelier Options:
1. The Outdoor Candle Chandelier
So you enjoy eating outside, do you? Then create a nice dining space that you’ll enjoy all the more. You can do this by adding a nice table, chairs, and this adorable outdoor candle chandelier.
But the best part is that there is a tutorial to show you how to go about creating this masterpiece. Now you can make your space exactly the way you desire.
2. The Bicycle Chandelier
Do you have old bicycle wheels, and you aren’t sure what to do with them? Don’t toss them. Instead turn them into a beautiful chandelier.
However, keep in mind, that you might need some wiring experience to pull this off. But with the right help, you could have these wheels hanging from your ceiling in no time.
3. The Pallet Chandelier
You know we love pallets around this site. They are great building material that doesn’t (usually) cost you anything.
So take that into consideration when creating your own pallet masterpiece. It is beautiful, rustic, and something almost everyone will love.
4. The Musical Chandelier
Do you have old records that you can’t do anything with? Don’t throw those out either. Instead, string them up into a decorative chandelier.
Plus, it would be a great way to go down memory lane. People will be so thrilled to see records and the music that they held on them that it will be a conversation piece.
5. The Solar Light Chandelier
This is another great outdoor idea. If you aren’t a big fan of having to light candles in your chandelier, then you should consider going solar.
Instead of having to use fire for light, you just allow the sun to do its job. Then you’ll have plenty of light overhead in a much simpler form.
6. The Spoon Chandelier
This is a very frugal idea. You can go to Goodwill in most areas and buy mismatched spoons for pennies, and you could probably find the circle to hang them from as well.
Then you just take it home and begin attaching the spoons in a design that you like. It is that simple to create this work of art.
7. The Foam Chandelier
If you are looking for a chandelier to work as a party décor or something more on the temporary side, then this could be a good option.
So you’ll just need to follow the tutorial to build your chandelier out of foam. Then you’ll have a beautiful decoration that will stun guests.
8. The Cardboard Chandelier
This is another great temporary chandelier. It is made of cardboard so I don’t see it lasting long term.
But if you’d like to create a chandelier for a party decoration, then you could follow this tutorial and create a chandelier that is very inexpensive.
9. The Tea Cup Chandelier
My mother-in-law used to make these chandeliers. They were really beautiful, and you can even change the design a little.
For instance, she made her chandeliers to look like they were pouring something from the teapot into the teacup.

This is another version of the solar chandelier. It is so you can have decorative outdoor lighting without any hassle of lighting candles or running electricity.
Plus, this one has a very thorough tutorial to help you figure out how to create your own.

This would be a cute décor item in more feminine spots in the home like a girl’s room or a powder room. It would also be a beautiful decoration for a party or a wedding reception too.

But sadly, there is no tutorial because I never could locate which site actually originated this beautiful piece.
18. The Galvanized Bucket Chandelier
This is a really rustic design for a chandelier. Yet, it would work really well as wedding décor or even in a rustic designed kitchen.
Unfortunately, there is no tutorial to help you along with this design so you’ll have to try to piece it together if you like the design.
19. DIY Birdcage Chandelier
This birdcage chandelier is really awesome. They hung it upside down and made it look like a birdcage that was actually in use.
