chandelier from binds and mardi gra beads

I've seen these around and knew I HAD to have one in my bathroom (above my shower)!
Instead of using all Mardi Gra beads, I used pieces of left over plastic from my blinds (vinyl vertical blind sheets). Here's how it turned out:
(I notice I missed a few spots with the white spray paint, so off to go get some more)

Here's a recap, not necessary a tutorial :)
I started with this hanging wire plant holder (I took off the hanging part for this picture) $1 at the Dollar tree

Made these plastic chains with cut up pieces of blind and jewelry chains (had all on hand, so free)

Added the mardi gra beads and plastic chains to the wire basket (I used floral wire for the beads and hot glue for the plastic chains)
Hung outside and spray painted white
(forgot to take a picture, but simple enough right?)

I took all the plastic ends and clamped them together with a button, wire, and a bead

Add ceiling hooks and hung the chandelier (I hung mine right over my light)
