I have to admit, I’d never heard of a pendant light before I started blogging for FaveCrafts. Maybe I just haven’t spent enough time decorating my (non-existent) home. Or perhaps pendant lights are just the latest craze in the craft world. I love talking about craft trends on this blog, like embroidery hoop crafts, specimen art, and burlap, so I figured I’d cover pendant lights too. I put together a list of 15 DIY Pendant Lights, and you should check it out to see the different lamps, chandeliers, and light fixtures I found. Here’s the truncated list of my favorites.
The Dollar Chandelier is one of my favorite projects on FaveCrafts. It just seems too good to be true–it’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s stylish, and it’s just such a pretty picture. You really won’t believe what it’s made from. Go ahead and check it out, and then come back and read about my other faves. I’ll wait…
I also love this Polka Dot Tissue Lantern. It’s another simple project that will only cost a couple bucks to complete. And the impact is amazing! I’d like to make a bunch and group them together to inject an extra dose of style.
Last but not least, we have the Scrap Wood Lamp. I’m not that into wood accents, but this lamp is an exception. My favorite part is that all the wood pieces are just scraps from other projects. My other favorite part is that the tutorial makes using power tools look easy! Yes, even you can use power tools and wire a lamp with this tutorial. It’s amazing.
I was totally wowed by this DIY Sputnik Chandelier made from parts of an Ikea lamp. Bonus: there’s even a tutorial so you can make one yourself too! This is another one of those projects that will leave you wondering “why didn’t I think of that??”
You know how much I love coffee filter crafts! This pendant light is covered in them–literally. It sounds like this light took forever to make, but it looks like it was definitely worth the effort! Just look at how gorgeous it looks over the table! I also love the drama of such a large, in-your-face light fixture.
