Materials Needed:

  • silk fall leaves or natural leaves gathered outside
  • one spool of 8 lb. fishing line
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
  • wax paper
  • painter's tape
  • measuring tape

Gather Leaves

Take a stroll outdoors to gather especially beautiful fall leaves — or head to your local craft store to buy silk versions. Sort leaves into separate piles by size.

Cut Wax Paper

To determine how much wax paper to use for this step, measure the distance between the bottom of your chandelier and the surface of your table. Then, roll out and cut a piece of wax paper that is as long as that measurement.

Attach Fishing Line

Roll out a length of fishing line that's six to eight inches longer than the wax paper. Use painter's tape to secure the fishing line to the top and bottom of the wax paper. Leave the extra six inches of fishing line hanging off the top edge of the wax paper; you'll need this later for tying the line onto your chandelier.
