DIY Locker Chandelier
Our public school years are now over, but through the years we have had some great times decorating lockers with friends. One of the most unique items that we made in the past was different variations of locker chandeliers. But this year I don’t have to decorate lockers, but I wanted to give you a fun idea for you kids locker. Hence, the DIY Locker Chandelier out of supplies from your local Dollar Tree. What I love about this is that it only cost $4 to make and even Tweens could make it on their own.
Here are the supplies needed:
Mini solar table top light (Dollar Tree)
Assorted wall decals in choice of color/design (we chose the bird and pennant kit from Dollar Tree, sold in the stationary and craft section.)
Color changing battery operated votive
Super adhesive or Command strips
Hot glue, glue gun
1. Begin by removing the top of the solar light. You can then drop in the battery operated votive. This will work better than using the light that is in there, as it won’t need any solar energy to glow. Place the lid back on and secure.
2. Use the decals to decorate the lamp portion as you wish. We took a few of the shapes and the bird shape and cut them out, peeled off the backing, and stick them to the lamp.
3. Trim the lamp shade using pipe cleaners cut to fit and secured with hot glue. Allow to dry.
4. Your chandelier is now ready to be displayed. Make sure the votive is switched to on, and add either super adhesive or a Command peel and stick strip to the underside of the lamp. You want it to hang upside down like a chandelier, not sit on the base like a lamp would. Replace the battery operated votive as needed.
Isn’t this an adorable way to decorate your lockers?? Be sure to share your finished projects with me. I love to see them!
