Recently I decided to challenge myself to create an inexpensive update! I use burlap in different areas in my home. Its texture and rustic and casual look appeals to me. After finding inspiration in various burlap chandeliers and shades, I came up with my own. Below is a pictorial review of my solution.
Cut burlap to appropriate size for frame. Measure and mark for grommets.
Trim frays and iron burlap fabric.
Spread freezer paper out on work surface. Apply decoupage medium to burlap.
Let decoupage thoroughly dry. Hang on chandelier frame.
I removed the Lucite pieces of the chandelier before hanging the burlap. I left the glass crystals on the fixture. See how they shine through with the bulbs lit.
Maybe I will see more clearly now when I walk into my dining room!
