What You'll Need


  • Straight pins
  • Chain-nose pliers
  • Silver cord
  • White glue
  • About 32 glass balls
  • 1 1/2-inch washer
  • Ceiling hook


  1. cutting string for bubble chandelier

    Hold one pin with pliers, and bend it 90 degrees with your fingers. Cut a 4-foot length of silver cord. (If you want your chandelier to hang higher, cut shorter lengths; for lower, cut longer.) Knot one end of the cord around the bend in pin. Dab with glue at knot to secure. Feed pin into hole in one glass ball. Once the pin is inside, gently pull the cord to position. Repeat with the remaining glass balls.

  2. stringing bubbles in varying heights

    Working over a soft surface, arrange balls in a cluster: Start by grasping just a few in one hand, and adjust the length to form a cluster of varying lengths. Add single balls as you go, adjusting length as you wish and adding the cord to the cluster you're grasping.

  3. tying knot to hang bubble chandelier

    Thread the loose ends through washer, and tie a knot, leaving a tail of about 18 inches. Optional: Wrap tail around washer to cover it completely. Secure with fabric glue. Hang from a hook anchored in the ceiling.
