Sometimes lighting is complicated. Follow along for my DIY basket pendant light. It’s so easy.
I used the Kaffebona basket from IKEA. It’s actually made for plants, so I removed the plastic lining. Something about plastic linings and light bulbs doesn’t sound safe.
This is a really precise step… are you ready? Totally kidding. I held the basket up to the pendant and used a pen to mark it, so that I knew where to cut it.
Step #3 (2 parts)
This step maybe got a little out of hand 😉 Instead of using the right tool the first time, I used to different tools that were both probably wrong for the job. But hey, it worked! The gist of this step is to use something (safe, of course) to cut out the hole for your pendant light to fit in.
I’m sure all pendant lights are different, but mine had this ring that screwed on underneath the shade. So, I just put the shade in place, screwed the ring in underneath it, twisted the light bulb in, and there you have it!
This basket cost me $6.99 maybe? So all in all, this project was super budget-friendly (and super easy).
