I saw this beaded chandelier at a new blog that I (thankfully!) stumbled upon the other day: Dollar Store Crafts. This site is chock-full of DIY ideas you can assemble with dollar store materials.

This entire chandelier project cost a measly $9. That's less than I spent on two magazines today. Even though affordable chandeliers aren't impossible to find, it's rare to find them this inexpensive! Those supplies included: hanging wire basket, six packages of Mardi Gras-style beads, floral wire, spray paint, wire cutters, and a hot glue gun.

The steps for this chandelier look surprisingly simple, and you can display this pretty piece outside or in. I think it'd be really cute in a little girl's nursery or an outdoor entertaining space.
