DIY: Rustic Chandelier

This beautiful mountain laurel chandelier at Rustic Designs caught our eye, but it is a rather steep $2,800. Why not gather a bundle of manzanita branches, lash them together with twine, and thread a strand of white lights through the whole thing?

Either gather your own bundle of branches or go to Manzanita Burlworks for sandblasted manzanita branches sold by the foot, or get a three-branch bundle of manzanita branches from Nettleton Hollow for $60.

Above: Weave white string lights through the branches; $4 for a 8-foot string from Amazon.

Very nice and would be nicer if youuse led lights instead the bulb lights, are safer and uses less energy.
