About once a year I send for all the catalogs Pottery Barn offers (kids, teens, living spaces). I have discovered they are the best inspiration for my personal style. I just got a batch and have been sleepless with all the inspiration they have given me. In the Christmas catalog this year I saw this…’chandelier'(?) of Christmas Bulbs, and I thought “I can do that!”
That’s the fun thing about Pottery Barn – some of the coolest things in the catalog aren’t actually for sale – it’s stuff you can do yourself. They’re just selling the bulbs here – you have to group them and tie them up yourself – which is just what I did.
I took a length of tulle I had lying around and cut it into long, thin strips (you can buy ‘tulle ribbon’ that would be perfect for this, but I was working with what I had!) and threaded the bulbs on varying lengths, gathered them all up, and tied the top with a bow of tulle. Too fun, Too easy. Try it!
