If you have the time, this would make a great week-end DIY project. It involves mason jars and at the end you’ll be able to create a very beautiful display for your home. It would be best if you had high ceilings for this one. You’ll need jars, a hanging lamp kit and a ceiling light place.

They seem so complex and yet they are so easy to make. These pendant lamps are a great week-end project. To make one you need bouncy balls, clear drying craft glue and, of course, hemp string. If you use a 16’’ diameter ball you’ll need 400 yards. For a 14’’ diameter ball – 300 yards and for a 9’’ diameter ball only 100 yards. First draw a circle on the ball. This circle represents the portion of the lamp that needs to remain clear of string. Then start applying the glue and wrap the hemp around the ball. Then use the inflating needle to deflate the ball and remove it from the lamp. Install the wires and hardware and your pendant lamp is done.We covered this project few weeks ago.

Re-purposed materials are a great way to get started with your DIY projects. Instead of running to thrift store for some inspiration, just look around your home, in the garage and in the attic for materials to work with. Whether it is an old utensil holder that you stopped using long ago or just some paper scrap, here are some fabulous ideas that turn the unwanted into show stopping decor –

Crafted by NSW-based designer Tamara Maynes, the DIY Quilt Light went on to become a part of prestigious events like the Milan Design Week in 2012. You can purchase the Quilt Light template for $20 and be part of some designer fun. [from: the design files]

As in most cases, this is a project that requires patience and time. First, gather all your supplies. They should include 9 yards of cotton twill ribbon, a lampshade (the one in the pictures measures 9’’ H x 11’’ W), a chopstick, a hot glue gun, a ruler and a pencil. Using the ruler and the pencil, draw a line to help you guide the ribbon down the lampshade. You should also make tick marks where the glue needs to be placed. Secure the end of the ribbon to the top of the lampshade and use the chopstick to make a ruffle. Use glue to secure it in place and repeat the process until you reach the bottom. Do the same for the rest of the lampshade.{found on curbly}.

There are tons of DIY light fixture projects out there to choose from if you’re interested – these are just some of our favorites. Light fixtures are a great way to get started with DIY projects because they are absolutely beautiful and make a very noticeable impact in your home – they’re highly visible and very beautiful, if they are compatible with your home decor. Once you make a beautiful chandelier out of leftover plastic bottles or spoons, using potential waste in other creative ways won’t seem so far-fetched.

Designed by Kevin Champeny (NOTE: These are acrylic gummy bears. Don’t use real ones or they might melt!)

This seems like an inspired version of the brilliant Random Light by Moooi and we are not complaining at all. While the real deal will set you back by nearly $600, the DIY String Light will barely cost you $50! Considering the grand visual that it paints and the gorgeous full moon look, this is a perfect DIY pendant idea for those who love contemporary design. [from: made by girl]

The color, the design and the sheer simplicity of this geometric pendant floors us every time we lay our eyes on it. Twelve balsa wood sticks and brilliant neon yarn in a color of your choice is all you will need for this fun project. Fuchsia is definitely one of the trending colors of the season. Once summer 2014 kicks in you can simply swap it out for some turquoise blue! [from: say yes to hoboken]

Mason jars can also be used to make beautiful hanging candelabras such as this one. For this project you need one-foot-wide plywood boards, rope, and Mason jars. Each jar needs to be filled with an electric tea-light candle and they will provide soft and diffuse light, perfect for the seating area or dining room. They create a warm and cozy atmosphere and they’re also versatile.{found on martha}.

Remember the scrap paper pendant above? This one looks like a fabric version of it with a hint of Hollywood glam. Vary the size of the light to create a small pendant or bulk it up to craft a grand chandelier that hangs majestically above the dining table. Spice the design up a bit and mix in some darker fabric to create an interesting pattern. [from: A Beautiful Mess]

This does take some precise (and we mean precise) wood cutting skills. But that is way better and more satisfying than shelling out $500 for the Dustin. [from: view along the way]

For this lamp you’ll need some wood that can either be left unfinished or painted. First cut the legs, the upper and lower rails, the center rails, the light support, the upper dowels and lower dowels. Sand them with sandpaper. Then measure 1-1/2″ from the top end of each leg and mark the locations for the holes. Glue and insert the ends of the upper dowels and then attach the upper and center rails. Attach the light support and the upper dowels. Finally, cut four canvas panels 6″ wide by 15″ long and wrap one end around an upper dowel. Glue the fabric to the dowel and repeat for the remaining parts.{found on lowescreativeideas}.

DIY projects are not just for girls and those beer-guzzling sports fans are also allowed to join on all the fun. So, ping pong might not be your favorite game, but crafting a similar pendant with footballs and basketballs maybe a touch odd… Just maybe! You can try one out with fewer golf balls, if you fancy it. Top it all off with some paint to create the rainbow-colored hue. [from: Poppytalk]

These pendant lamps are designed for outdoor use. To make some similar one you need to cut the bottoms from candle holders and to fit them around basic pendant lights. You’ll be able to create a dabbled light effect, perfect for your outdoor dining area.{found on hgtv}.

These really do bring a smile to your face! They are small, super-cute and the colored wiring on top gives them a stylish eclectic appeal. You can obviously experiment with pie pans for larger pendants that are similarly styled. If mini-lamps are what you want, then the tart tin lights are the perfect pendants for you. [from: Lauren Elise Crafted]

For this project you’ll need to use a mold. You get to decide the dimensions as well as the shape. It would be best to make it as simple as possible. You can use plywood for this part. Then apply a few thick coats of varnish or lacquer. This way the surface will be smooth and the mold will be protected from water. Next it’s time to add the wiring. For this you can use Styrofoam. For the demolding, start with the simplest sides and continue with the rest. Then let the concrete dry a little more. Next, install a bulb and you’re done.

It is hard to imagine that the lighting fixtures in this kitchen were once discarded waste. But one man’s trash is another person’s treasure! The idea is a wonderful example of how one can find pendant light inspirations in the most  unlikely of places as well. Simply outstanding! [from: design sponge]

Paper lamps are delicate and beautiful and, with a little, patience you can make one on your own. It will take you around 6 to 8 hours to make a lamp but, once it’s complete, you’ll most definitely be proud of what you have done. It’s not difficult, it’s just takes a lot of time. Most of this time will be spent folding so you’ll be able to do it while watching a movie or doing something else.{found on site}.

DIY pendants are a wonderful way to have some weekend fun while adding plenty of chic glam to your home’s interior. While some are pretty simple to work with, others take a touch of ingenuity. What about the pendant lights in your home? Which one of these tempts you to pick up a few tools this weekend?

Yes, that warm and fuzzy light installation is simply a PET bottle and some white plastic spoons put together. It is another of those DIY pendants where low-energy LED lights that radiate minimum heat are a must. Recycled bottles, plastic and LED lighting… this is as eco-friendly as it gets folks. [from: the chive]

Making the plastic bad pendant light is very similar to the flowery creation above and while it takes a bit more work, the result is well worth the effort. Use quality plastic for better results instead of flimsy drug store plastic bags. While the pendant here is crafted from white plastic bags sporting black print, you can mix and match various colors for an eclectic visual.

Guess what makes up the base of this uber-simple pendant? It’s a toilet paper roll… And some golden wrap on top of it. This maybe will take about 5 minutes of your life but manages to add plenty of style to your slick bachelor pad. [from: Design and Form]

Innate simplicity of the pendant light design and its varied forms mean that you can craft one out of pretty much any material of your choice. Old wine bottles and glasses make for really appealing pendant lights thanks to their transparent nature. Most of these also work as standalone art installations even when not switched on. And we even have a ping pong ball pendant below for the sports fanatics out there!

Another one of those amazing DIY projects that is inspired by more expensive retail versions and this time, it is the Dustin Pendant from Ralph Lauren. The Dodecahedron light is an amazing and meticulous recreation that runs the original pendant pretty close. Just spray on some black paint and you might not even notice any difference!

We all have moments of inspiration, it is just that most of us are too lazy to get back and work on those ideas. Not the creator of this West Elem-inspired Perforated Globe Pendant, who decided to make a DIY version of the $160 pendant lights using a couple of plastic bowls! The DIY above and the real deal from West Elm below; you be the judge! [from: Mad in Crafts]

This one is a particularly simple project. It requires 10 yards of cotton herringbone ribbon, a lampshade measuring 8’’ H x 9’’ W, a chopstick, a hot glue gun, tape measure and a pencil. First decide how far apart you want to space the diamonds and mark these spaces. Then lay a strip of ribbon diagonally across the lampshade and move the ribbon one mark ahead on the bottom portion of the shade. Secure everything with a pink and attach the ends of the ribbon to the lampshade with hot glue. Next, place a strip of ribbon on top of one of your initial pieces and repeat until you cover the whole lampshade.{found on curbly}.

DIY home improvement projects that also use recycled materials are becoming more and more popular with people all over the world because they give us a tangible, real way to make a small difference in our waste imprint as a species. Granted, not all of these ideas are truly recycling-oriented, but they can still save you a heck of a lot of money. If you’re good with your hands in any way, there’s probably a project or two here that you could try out at home. And if not – check out our other DIY recycling post for more ideas! Only a few of the projects on this list require special or unusual tools.

Soda can or beer can, feel free to use tabs from any canned and chilled beverage of your choice. While there might be other soda can pendants around with similar style, this one steals the show due to the diagonal placement of the pop tabs. It really has a cool and shiny glint about it and once darkness sets in, the glittering tabs make for quite a visual display indeed.

Have the metal cage of an old fan lying around and collecting rust in the garage? That makes for a brilliant pendant light as well. Just add some bright paint to it and you have the perfect retro-styled focal point in the room. Large and extravagant, the design is an instant hit even in a cool contemporary setting. If you want a more industrial style, then opt for a steel grey finish. [from: kittenhood]

Turn those metal sheets typically used to cover radiator vents in the bedroom into a lovely pendant with metallic hue. Even if you do not have any of these sheets lying around, just get a couple from the local hardware store. Remember, the more intricate the cutout design, the more beautiful your metal pendant light would be. Add a few washers, screws and a lighting kit to get it ready.

To make a similar chandelier you’ll first have to choose some branches that you like, clean them, remove the twigs and any loose bark. Then screw the branches together. You’ll also need some lamp cord, small candelabra sockets, some ¼ IP nipple and a light canopy. Wire the candelabra sockets together and screw them onto the nipples. Add the cord and he chandelier is done.{found on apartmenttherapy}.

Colored glass bottles can be recycled and repurposed in many different ways. For example, you can use them to make beautiful chandeliers. All you have to do is lightly cut the bottom of the bottle and fasten it to a piece of wood or metal. Pass through electrical equipment and electrical cords and it’s complete.{found on styleitchic}.

This is another easy-to-make pendant lamp and this time you’ll be using tulle. You’ll need 10 yards of 54’’ wide tulle, embroidery floss, a light bulb, a pendant lamp (in this case Melodi pendant lamp), a large embroidery needle, a rotary cutter and mat, safety pins and a straight edge. Start by cutting a 17’’ wide strip of tulle, fold the larger piece so that one side is 17’’ and the other 20’’ and you’ll have three layers. Use safety pins to secure them together. Sew a simple running/basting stitch one inch from the edge of the fold and remove the safety pins. Overlap the right and left sides and wrap everything around the lamp. Tie a knot and insert the cord and light bulb.{found on craftynest}.

Inspired by the famous Cassiopeia chandelier, the Bamboo Orb is made from old Roman shades crafted out of the material. We love the artistic look of the light installation and it sure adds sophistication in a subtle and elegant manner. Since the bamboo strips were obtained from an old window shade, you need not worry about too much of slicing and dicing either. [from: Crafty Nest]

This is also an outdoor feature. It allows you to turn an everyday bottle into a tiki torch for your outdoor area. You need an empty wine bottle, Teflon tape, a copper top plate connector, a 1’’split ring hanger, ½’’ x 3/8’’ copper coupling, two hex nuts, two #10 x 1” zinc plated wood screws, 3/8’’ -16 zinc plated threaded rod, a tiki replacement wick and torch fuel. You’ll have to make a hanger first and then to work with the actual bottle.{found on designsponge}.

It might not seem like a good idea to combine a book with a light bulb. But, when you think about it, the pages of the book could create a very beautiful effect, especially when the light is diffused and spread through them. The project is extremely simple.

There are so many different types of lighting and they are all unique. In this huge and complex collection of lamps, pendants, chandeliers and all sorts of fixtures, finding the one that bests suits your needs and preferences is an almost impossible task. But there are ways in which you can design them yourself. These so called DIY projects give you more freedom and allow you to choose the materials, design, color and all the other details. Let’s take a look at some ideas.

Turn the bland white glass pendant into something that is set to be the showstopper. This DIY project is a superb way to add some accent color to the neutral room. A touch of glass paint, some rubbing alcohol and a dash of patience is all you need to create these colorful wonders. Do not rush with the spray paint job though and work carefully to create the gorgeous color gradient you see here. [from:  Design Love Fest]

Working with glass requires a bit of care but glass pendant lights always look far more attractive than any other designs.

Metallic wire is a wonderful way to bring in some industrial design into the room. The maker of the wire basket pendant was inspired by the light, wire cage-styled pendants at Anthropolgie that come with a heavy price tag. The solution is an old wire basket, some black spray paint and a pendant light. Ingenious and impressive! [from: Ashley Ann Photography]

This is not exactly recycled, but the fact that it is so close to nature meant it had to be put alongside the other planet-friendly designs. Grab a large wire basket, some gorgeous fresh flowers in dazzling scarlet and red and a bit of green filler and you are all set for some original and exquisite lighting for your Christmas party!

Wine bottle lights are pretty popular DIY projects and if you are an ardent lover of homemade crafts, then this is not the first time you would have come across one.

Give the project a go and you will soon be addicted. [from: The Rena Nicole Show]

Go down a more conventional path by simply using plain white printer paper instead of the maps to craft the faceted pendant. The spotless look might be a touch hard to maintain, but it comes in handy as a wedding decorative or even as a grand pendant to take center stage at the next weekend party.

While very beautiful and good-looking, this looks like a complex and complicated project. Well, it takes a lot of time to make but it’s actually not that difficult. You need white spray paint, ribbon, scissors, 1 or 2 rolls of wax paper, 2 big pieces of parchment paper, an iron, a hot glue gun, a circle cutter and a cutting mat. Start with a planter basket and spray paint it. Then start making the capiz shells. Cut three pieces of wax paper about the same length and place in between parchment paper. Iron them. Cut ribbon pieces and attach them to the planter basket. Attach the capiz shells until you cover the basket and it’s all done.{found on designsponge}.

Globes are usually displayed on shelves or as a collection. But if you want to use them in a more creative way, try making a pendant lamp. Cut the globe into halves and hang them from the ceiling after you have installed the cord and wires. You’ll be able to make two pendant lamps from one globe, one from each hemisphere.{found on Rosebud’s Cottage}.

This type of pendant lamps would look best in the dining room or above a breakfast bar or in the kitchen. They are made of modified silverware caddies. They are very easy to make and all you need to do is attach the cord, hardware and wires. You could also paint them if you prefer a different color.{found on ikeafans}.

Divine is the only word for these inspired pendants. Just use some cotton batting along with a few paper lanterns to recreate the heavenly aura of these pendants. But always use ultra-cool and efficient soft LED lights that do not get too hot. Put a bunch of them together and they almost might tempt you to believe that you are floating among the clouds!

Once again, it is the simplest of DIY projects that plays off of color and contours in a gorgeous manner. Grab some galvanized steel wire, good old cans of spray paint and get started on those chic hoops. We love their minimal and vivid appeal… [from: A Beautiful Mess]

The next four spherical DIY pendant wonders showcased here are creations of Allison Patrick of the 3R’s Blog. First among the quartet is the white paper petal pendant. All you need here is an old lantern and cut out your flower shapes that go on top of the lantern structure. Just glue them on till you are satisfied with the look. A large pendant like the one here can take up as many as 200 flower cut outs!
