GLOBE PENDANT LAMP
I remember my parents buying me a globe during my school to help me study geography. As I grew up, I didn’t have any need for that and I guess it’s lying somewhere in those boxes. Now I think this would be a great idea for me to make use of that long forgotten globe of mine and turning it into a study lamp or something. Perhaps, you should try it too if you have one.
Just cut the globes into two halves and hang in from the ceiling. It’s that easy, and you can also flaunt off your nerd side with these uber cool lampshades. What’s also great about this is that you can make two shades with one globe, turning each hemisphere into one.
GLASS BOTTLE PENDANT LAMPS
This is a wonderful idea for all those wine and drink lovers out there. What do you do with the empty bottles left over after your drinking sessions? Why don’t you turn them into wonder lighting fixtures instead?
These could be done in two ways. You can cut off the bottoms of the wine bottles and fix a bulb into it and suspend from the ceiling. This would be a great way to give subtle lighting to your kitchens, dining space or living areas. You can also use the same bottom-cut bottles as candle holder or electric lamp shades, by placing them on the stairway or in the corner of the room.
FAUX CAPIZ CHANDELIER
If you are looking to get a chandelier for your house, look no further and indulge in this beautiful, sophisticated and alluring DIY chandelier. It sure looks difficult to make and is time-consuming. But I believe that the end product is definitely worth it.
For this project, you would be needing, a couple of rolls of wax papers, scissors, white spray paint, parchment papers, ribbons, a hot glue gun, circle cutter, an iron and a cutting mat. Start of by spray painting a planter basket and making the capiz shells. Take the wax paper, cut them into three pieces and place them in between the parchment paper. Fix ribbons to the planters’ basket and glue the capiz shells to the ribbons until the desired height and you are done.
TREE BRANCH CHANDELIER
A wonderful idea for houses with big dining spaces, a tree branch chandelier needs some branches, candelabra sockets and lamp cords. You need to collect as many twigs, branches and barks as you want, clean them and screw them together into desired shape. Then you have to wire the sockets together, screw them onto the branches and add a cord to give it a final touch.
