Hi Friends! This weekend I did a thing… as a result I’m feeling much better about this fixture! While I had my sewing machine out I decided to DIY this super quick cover-up for the chain and cord on this beaded faux chandelier. I purchased this beauty from Home Sense and added a light kit from World Market to create some extra light in this space. After I worked the cord to the light kit through the chain I decided I wanted to cover all the “mechanics”.
I measured the length of the chain and then measured 3 x’s the length of the ribbon to allow for the extra needed to create the bunched effect. I matched the sides and with my sewing machine then I sewed as close to the edge as possible.
I was able to sew both sides since this fixture is removable from the chandelier canopy that is already secured to the ceiling. Last summer we decided to hang this canopy to allow for different fixtures and candelabras since you know how I love to change things up!
Then I was able to simply slide the burlap ribbon cover over the chain and cord and gathered it so it appears bunched or cinched if you will.
