DIY Light Fixtures

Last week I was at ABC Carpet and Home, one of the best, most magical, stores ever, and found this awesome yarn light fixture. I loved the idea of hanging a lightweight fixture in the baby’s room—something as soft as he is. So as I attempt to make it, I’ll post photos. For now, here are some other cool DIY light fixtures!


I love the soft glow of the light through the white yarn.


Yes, this chandelier is made from rock candy. Def not a permanent fixture, but fun for a party. Found on Once Wed.


These two lights are upcycling at their best! On the left, the pendant lamp is made from plastic bags, and the wall light fixture on the right is made from plastic bottles. By then Yale student Tyler Velton, found via MSLK Reactions.


This amazing piece by Stuart Haygarth is made up of random translucent objects. Love. Found via The Scoop.


I love the frilliness of this wedding cake chandelier by Laurie Cinotto of La La Laurie. Found on The Bride’s Cafe.


It doesn’t get easier than this! Pearl River has great rice paper parasols if you are in the mood. Found on Zedomax.


I love how rich and expensive this homemade bubble fixture looks. Via Apartment Therapy.


Believe it or not, this light is made from zip ties. Found via Jennifer Adams.
