11 Initial wow factor
  • Step 1. Cut the tube

    Take your irrigation tube and cut it to around 1.8 metres in length.

  • Step 2. Join the ends

    Use duct tape to join the two ends of the irrigation tube together
  • Step 3. Wrap the rope around

    Wrap the rope all the way around the hoop. You can use a drop of glue to make sure it sticks and stays tight. 

  • Step 4. Add some detail

    You can wrap an extra layer of rope to add some detail. 

  • Step 5. Add fairy lights

    Drape your fairy lights over the hoop, all the way around.

  • Step 6. Cut rope for hanging

    Cut 4 even lengths around 1.5 metres long.

  • Step 7. Tie the rope to your loop

    Tie the rope to your hoop. Space them as evenly as possible so your chandelier will be level when hung.
  • Step 8. Gather rope and fairy lights

    When all 4 pieces of rope are tied on, gather them together and wrap the fairy lights around. 

  • Step 9. Secure the battery pack

    Loop the top of the rope around the battery pack and secure with a rubber band.
  • Step 10. Attach to the hook

    Now you simply slide the ‘S’ hook through the rope.


  • Step 11. Initial wow factor

    Great job! Now all that’s left to do is hang your chandelier where everyone can appreciate it.
