If you've hung around the DIY blogosphere for any amount of time, you most likely learned one thing above all others: anything can be made into a lamp.
That, of course, doesn't mean you should turn everything into a lamp...I once saw one created from an old 1970s teddy bear that was so awful I actually had a nightmare about it. Literally, this thing haunted my dreams.
Traveling through Morocco and southern Spain, Stregoi fell in love with the Moorish patterns and mosaic that characterize the architecture and spaces
So, he created this amazing pendant lamp inspired by these patterns, and shares his templates so you can make one of your own.
A reader sent this to me in response to yesterday's spray-paint themed Handmade Haiku. I love how the colors and aesthetics match, but the pattern on each is just a bit different. There's no official how-to, but I'm thinking some empty cans and a few Hemma light cord sets are a great place to start.
