  • DIY pom-pom chandelier

    Pom Pom Chandelier

    I have finally finished my pom-pom chandelier! I was inspired to make this when researching about traditional Polish chandeliers called Pujaki. Peasants used to make these during the winter months in preparation for their biggest holiday…Christmas!
