DIY Idea: Make String Covered Pendant Lights
I’m inspired by the look of these pendant lights; a great way to add some color and a bit of rustic texture to your home.
Created by Ana Kras, these “Bonbon” pendant lights are part of an exhibition showcased at DILETTANTE in L.A. I love how they look amazing even when they’re not lit up. If you wanted to make something similar for your home, you’ll probably need a few things:
– A lamp shade wire frame (you could even use an old one from the thrift shop)
– Yarn or cord
– Hot glue
– Light kit (like IKEA’s Hemma)
Then, just wrap the yarn or cord around the frame to create shapes and patterns of your liking. Seems like a pretty great project to tackle that doesn’t require hardcore power tools. You could even use this project as some sort of “meditative DIY” – craft and repetition seems are a useful way to declutter your brain. Just ask any knitter or crocheter.
