LED Chandelier

We made this chandelier by encasing 5 metres of LED rope lighting in Plastimake.

Here's how we did it:

  1. We started off by making a long, thin rod of Plastimake.
  2. We bent this rod into a circle and fused the ends together.
  3. We tightly wrapped the LED lighting around the circular piece of Plastimake.
  4. We applied Plastimake directly onto the LED rope lighting.

We left some LEDs exposed, and enclosed others in Plastimake entirely. The lights that are fully enclosed have a nice glow to them.

This chandelier is a little bit rough around the edges, as we were testing out a bunch of different techniques. I'm sure you could make a prettier one if you gave it a try!
