Yup, this little chandelier is made out of candy. Not sure of its longevity or if it would attract wee beasties, but for temporary applications, it doesn't get much more charming. Laura is our instructor for this project, and here is her materials list:

  • rock candy strings
  • bailing wire (16 gauge)
  • seam binding or ribbon
  • wire cutters 
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks

For the entire tutorial, head on over to Once Wed. But before you do that, check out the picture below. Perfect for winter/Christmas decor, no?

Oh wow those are neat. I think I like LARPkitten's idea of making them from alum so as not to atract flies and bugs. They are so pretty as decoration. I'd love to do a whole Christmas tree with them.

If you're concerned about attracting little beasties that like sweet things, you can always make the "rock candy" strings out of alum instead.  It's usually found with spices in the grocery store (it's used for pickling) but it's much drier than sugar (so I'd imagine it handles humidity better, too) and bitter, so flies and bugs won't want it.
