Paper chandeliers (and some pom-pom varieties) are popping up on all my favorite Pinterest bulletin boards. They are so celebratory, so cheerful. I can imagine the paper creations draped decadently all over my apartment–or the big-windowed, high-ceilinged library where I work. The chandeliers are pajaki, literally “spiders of straw,” a holiday folk art that originated from the Lowicz region of Poland.
The super-fun pom pom chandelier comes from Small for Big, which offers complete DIY instructions.
