I’ve been toying around with the idea of adding a little something extra to our chandelier over the kitchen table. So far, I’ve draped a few strands of beads over it that I found at the flea market. But, here a few DIY ideas that I think are really interesting for dressing up a basic light that add some texture at the same time.
1. String wooden balls in three different sizes and drape over a simple chandelier.

(This one reminds me of ours. I think I could duplicate this!)
2. Wrap a chandelier in rope.
(Looks a little tricky, but I love the nautical feel.)
3. Create a driftwood chandelier.

I’m not sure how feasible this one is for me, but I think it’s beautiful. And, I’m intrigued by the fact that the base is a hanging basket from the garden section of the hardware store. (There’s not a step-by-step tutorial on this one, but there is a photo of the supplies used in the link.)
