Wire hanging baskets are available in dollar stores.

Use the following directions for all three styles:

Take the hook of the flower basket hanger and put it through the bottom hole of the basket.

When holding the basket from the hook your basket will now be faced down.

Note: It will be easier to work on this project if you hang the basket from something.

Lamp Shade Style

Supplies:

1 wire-hanging basket
5 yards of 5/8” ribbon
Diamond wrap
Glue gun

 

Directions:

Cover all wire of the basket with a single row of diamond wrap.

Take the ribbon and secure it by knotting it to the top of the basket. Wrap the ribbon around the basket until the entire basket is covered. Glue the end down to secure in place.

Flower Chandelier

Supplies:

1 wire-hanging basket
Enough flowers to cover entire flower basket hanger
Glue gun

 

Directions:

Using your glue gun, cover entire basket with flowers.

Sparkly Chandelier

Supplies:

1 wire-hanging basket
Diamond wrap
2 silver sparkly bead necklaces (available at dollar store)
2 black sparkly bead necklaces
Glue gun

 

Directions:

Before you, you will have your upside-down basket.

Using a glue gun, cover all wire of the basket with a single row of diamond wrap.

Cut open the necklaces so that they are long strands.

Glue one bead of one necklace at one of the intervals, where the two wires meet.

Create scallop by continuing around the base gluing beads at intervals where wires meet.

One strand of each color will not be enough; start the second strand where the first one ends. The two ends can be glued to each other with a glue gun.

Repeat with second color of beads right above the first strand.
