I made this by creating a trellis type structure to hold the lights. The lights are just the icicle christmas lights. And I used bolts to fasten it to the ceiling.  It turned out different than I imagined it would, but I like it. Some of the lights blink and at night the reflections resemble firelight. What else is cool is that the light has a dimmer switch so when turned down a little, the lights look like stars. Sorry if the pictures came out too dark. And don't mind the sad plant on the right, my cat played with it and I haven't got a replacement for it yet.  Smiley

That's absolutely gorgeous.  It looks like something you can only find in a home fashion magazine :p

You know, I saw someone who used a coffee table (the kind with the iron base and glass top, but without the glass, obviously) attached to the ceiling and they hung pots and pans on it. The same idea could probably be used with your idea, which is ABSOLUTELY beautiful, btw. Looks so pretty!!
