I love a good ol’ craft project. Nothing makes me happier than spending a weekend afternoon with a project spread across the dining room table. In looking around for alternative lighting for the Dream house, I came across a number of amazing DIY pendant lights. From garbage cans to ice buckets, it seems like just about anything can become a light fixture!
Trash Can Pendant Light from Domestically Speaking – Talk about trash to treasure! Maryann took a standard wicker garbage can and turned it into a stylish light fixture.
On the Rocks from Makely Home – Perfect for the type who likes a tipple, an upcycled ice bucket is perfect above a bar.
Globe Light from Oregon Live – Turn the world upside down and put a bulb in it.
Tart Tin Lamp from Houzz – These little tins are easy to find at thrift stores and flea markets.
Industrial Whisk Light from Brooklyn to West – Whip up some vintage fun with one of these industrial inspired lights.
Concrete Pendant Knock Off from HomeMade Modern – The original concrete lamp is spendy. The DIY version is labor intensive but affordable.
Brass Bowl Pendant from The Hunted Interior – Jump on the brass trend and add a little shine to your lighting.
Birch Bark Lamp from Ruffled – Bring a little nature inside with this bark pendant.
Mason Jar Pendant from A Beach Cottage – Canning jars bring country charm to pendant lighting.
Paint Can Pendant from Shelterness – Adding a coat of leftover paint to those old paint cans can turn them into beautiful lighting.
