Octopus Chandi

Okay, I spend a lot of time recreating ideas that I borrow from here, but I swear I finally had an original thought, or at least I think so. When I was working on my bird feeder chandi, I turned it over and immediately saw an octopus. I finally found another chandi for $5.00, even though it only has six legs(or arms). I used washers glued and then wired at the bottom for the suction thingys. I was thinking that bottle caps might work for this on a larger light. I haven't decided if I'm gonna keep him or put him in a sale I'm thinking about doing this fall. I want to do a pink and green one with maybe some glass globs instead of washers, DH has already brought me another chandilier that he got free at a GS.

WAY CUTE! I love the "washers" ... alternating colors! A fun project! (Reminds me of those "yarn octupus' that we used to braid yrs ago!...but your "chandi" is way cuter!) TFS, frou! Jeanne s.

Outstanding!! LOL!! LOVE it!! Did you have to add any pieces, for the head? Great for a nautical theme. Would go perfectly with the blue nautical chair kylslill posted.

That octopus is so sweet, I think you should call her "Candi, the Octopus Chandi".
