Some of you asked for a tutorial on how to make that gorgeous industrial lightbulb chandy that Gianna of Chic Celebrations made yesterday for Film and Lace wedding ideas shoot, and today you’re in luck!

You will need:

  • chicken wire
  • 1×2 wood strips (at home improvement stores such as Home Depot, they can cut to desired size for you)
  • chain
  • small nails
  • 4 small hooks (to attach the chain onto each end of the wooden frame)
  • lamp kits
  • L brackets
  • liquid nails (or other wood glue for the frame)

Mount wood frame to desired size and secure the inner joints with L brackets. Stain or paint your frame if you’d like. Layer chicken wire over the top of your frame, and secure it with nails. This will help you divvy up the space between each lightbulb. Drill a hole on each end of the frame to attach the hooks, where the chain will mounted. From the bottom of your frame, thread your lamp kits through the wire mesh.
