To make a beautiful butterfly chandelier, you are supposed to follow these steps.

Step 3: Initiate by working on the chandelier’s core. One end of your thread should be tied to it. The other is given to the butterfly. Leave the length connected to your spool rather than clipping it. Place a glue dot in the center of one of the butterflies, place it over your fishing line, and push the second butterfly on top.
Step 4: Continue connecting butterflies in the same manner as before, working from the inside out. The center of the cross wires was used first, followed by each corner where the wire was joined to the hoop, and then one or two strands in between each corner. Fill in as much or as little as you wish in your chandelier. And there you have it, your lovely chandelier.
Keep these things in mind while making this beautiful Chandelier:
- Use as many butterflies as you can so that it’ll be heavy and pretty.
- Use light color papers to make butterflies.
Now that you have the steps follow this guide on making a butterfly chandelier and making one for your home.
