Chandelier Hangings

We have a chandelier in a room that once was a dining room but now is a playroom.
It is a bit of a hazard.  A few of the taller people in the house hit their heads on it regularly.

Or they did until I got creative and started hanging colorful ornaments from it at Christmas.  When we cleaned up from Christmas, it was perfect to hang snowflakes on it, and then hearts in February, replaced by shamrocks in March and Easter eggs in April.

But Easter is over, and I'm wondering what to hang next.  There aren't any great themed holidays coming up soon.  What shall I hang on my chandelier?


  1. Try spring flowers, followed by summer flowers, followed by autumn leaves!

  2. I love the idea of a seasonal mobile! I agree with Mom's comment. You could even change the flowers from month-to-month by letting the girl(s) help craft them. Maybe silk stems from Walmart one month, or assemble your own felt flowers, tissue flowers, baked clay flowers, dried pressed flowers from the garden, etc. etc.

  3. Oh, I forgot to mention spirals! Take a colorful piece of round paper and cut a spiral from the outer edge into a small center circle. Hang by the tip and let the rest of the spiral hang down. You could do different weights of paper for different looks too. This would be cool for the 4th of July with red, white, and blue streamers. : )
