  • Chandelier "Scrunchies"

    Have you ever seen “Scrunchies” for chandliers?

    What you do is cover the chain from the chandelier in a long tube of fabric lightly wider than the chain and flex (silk looks best) make it three times longer than the chain and scrunch it up.
    it looks pretty in a dining room and conceals the electrical wire.

    I have seen these in stately homes and chateaux we have visited on holiday (even on holiday I can't help noticing curtains etc.!)

    I have a curtain making book where they suggest making similar 'tubes' of fabric to cover poles between fixed heading curtains, esp. those with a channel heading where the pole is threaded through the top of the panel.

      This might be a silly question, but do you have to take the chandelier down to get the scrunchy on? I would love these on my chandeliers, but can face taking them down!

        I can't think of a way to avoid taking the fitting down.......for instance, if you used vecro to close the length of the fabric to make the tube I think it would make the finished item too stiff/bulky to scrunch properly.

          Was going to say you'd need a pretty good head for heights and a steady hand to do them in situ.....

          I suppose they've gathered it prior to putting the velcro in.

            Thanks so much for this link Jules - I will have a look, and hopefully they will have something - my Chandeliers arent anywhere near as grand as those in the picture, but you can still see the wire running through the chain, and it has always annoyed me!

              They look pretty easy to make. They even tell you how long they are when un-scrunched (6ft?) so you'll probably be able to make your own now Karen has brought them to our attention!
