What’s more fun and unusual than a well made cardboard chandelier? If it’s done really well it can even be a whimsical addition to the right room. But it’s great for little girls rooms or playhouses. This pattern is a different version from our DIY chandelier we did a couple years back. We created both patterns ourselves.

Foam Board / Cardboard Chandelier Supplies
- Sheet of foam board or cardboard
- Pattern download
- X-acto Knife
- Hot Glue Gun
- Dowel 1/4″ (approximate) at least 13″ to 14″ in length
- Wood ball 1″ or 1.5″ (optional)
- Drill (for wood ball)
- Bling of choice. We used gems.
Make slices through the top layer of the cardboard as you want it to stay on one piece.
Foam Board Instructions
Foam board has an outer paper that can many times be peeled off.
Slice only partway through the foam board. Try to keep it in one piece.
If your board breaks apart where you sliced it you can use tape to hold it together.
