Forget about the pricey chandeliers and lamps y0u find at stores. Today, we bring you some of the bestÂ DIY illuminating projects out there. Get ready for a set of our favorite kind of projects: the ones that you can do withÂ materials that are lying around or those that only cost a few bucks.
1. Floral lamp
Grab a wire waste basketÂ and wrap a floral print around it. Cut a hole on top and pass the cord through it.
2. Bright ping pong balls
Take some Christmas lights and put ping pong balls on them. Cut a small hole and stick the two elements together with a little bit of glue.
3. Mason jars
Get some jars similar to the ones on the picture and use a hammer and a nail to open a small hole on the lid. This way, the socket can go through and you can attach the lamp. More instructions here.
4. Globe lamp
Do you have an old globe lying around? Use it to make a stylish lamp like this one.
5. Recycled Plastic Cups lamp
You will need around 250 large plastic cups (if they’re used, good for you because you’re recycling), 700 staples and a stapler to hold the cups together and a lamp socket, cord and plug.
6. Wax paper chandelier
This chandelier is remarkablyÂ similar to a capiz shell, but costs way less. It’s a little more complex than the previous ones, but it’s so worth it. Check the tutorial here.
