It's Officially Spring...over my Dining Table!

My little house is slowly becoming more me.
When you can't paint you have to look elsewhere for color.
I was given this idea by an amazingly talented woman at church...

...I forgot to take the boring "before" picture. Just imagine the lonely little light, naked and cold...

Can I just tell you how big of a difference this this makes! I love it!
It adds a little distinction to the dinning area (our floor plan is VERY open)
and  actually makes eating a little more intimate even for my family of seven!

I started with a grapevine wreath form, wired in the ivy and bead garland, then added the individual hydrangea, Persian rose, red berry stems, and grass picks.
I tied the wreath to the chandelier using burlap ribbon, leaving the ties a little long, and last used craft wire to add a handle to the glass globes and then tied those to the light with a green sheer ribbon.
The tea lights are battery operated-I don't trust my 3 yr old with fire! And they are so fun. I'm thinking I need one more globe and a filler of sorts to hide the tea lights a bit.
 But aside from that, I'm a happy girl!
(AND, my husband didn't even complain that it was in the way-success!!!)
Happy Crafting.
