    How do you decorate your Chandelier ?

    I have always had recessed lights, but this time I am putting a Chandelier in my dining room just for christmas. Could some of you post a picture of your light? I haven't bought my light yet and I need to figure the best style of light to decorate with. I hope you understand what I am asking. How about this one, it is on sale? It might be too big, but one like it would allow for wrapping garland and/or hang ornaments. I could do with or without shades- different shade colors.

    PS -- This is the one I finally bought and hung

    As far as you picking a chandelier it would depend on your decor.

    I put garland around mine and put some ornaments on top and some hanging. I have been using plastic ornaments and different picks I use plastic because I have a glass table and don't want something heavy to fall on the glass or want one to fall as we are eating. Originally I had purchased some angels to hang down but they were really heavy.

    If you want to decorate your chandelier you are right to really give it some thought. My chandelier is very modern and wouldn't look right if I decorated it!

    I have a brass chandelier with 5 short curved arms and 5 long curved arms. I weave pine rope garland through the arms. Then I use either decorative hangers or thin ribbon to attach ornaments to the chandelier arms. Usually I hang antique gold ornaments but sometimes I switch off to delicate pewter ones or I use a theme like all birds.

    we have on in the living room so we tie any extra christmas tree baubles onto it, so they hang down and catch the light x
