I'm so curious to see what everyone else comes up with to create from dollar store items! I spent most of my cash in one aisle... curious if anyone else chose the same aisle as I did. Wink

I received from skullseamstress yesterday!!



This awesome chandelier is made out of paperclips. Yes, paperclips.

(In-progress shot, it's been dark here lately so skullseamstress let me use her pics  Grin)





This was taken straight from my wists - I can't wait to get the light fixture to finish it off!

You can see more pictures here http://www.flickr.com/photos/flickrsy/sets/72157624136329228/

You have NO IDEA how incredinervous I was that the paperclips would tangle irrevocably horribad in transit!  So glad it survived! (although, these are pics from before, lol. It wasn't too tangley, was it?)

I actually had quite a bit of fun making it, the tutorial is available on etsy from a store called "ReDesignTechnologies"  (so I won't be talking about the actual method, heh.)

I'll probably post another post somewhere else in repurposed housewares or something.  EDIT: Here's the post   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348117.0

YEY I'm so glad you like it! =D

Oh! Pics of receipts / Materials!

Here's the stuff I used: Paperclips, and the wire from some chincy dollar store hanging kits:





(Edit: I checked with my partner beforehand that me sending one large item would be agreeable!)

It was barely tangled, so don't worry! Just trying to decide the perfect permanent hanging spot.... Grin
