How to make a Drinking Straw Pendant Light


Seriously...a pendant light made out of drinking straws. Lots of them. And the best part? It looks great! Addicted 2 Decorating tells us that 40 bucks should buy the supplies to make one. What you'll need:

  •  a roll of metal hardware cloth with a 1/2" grid
  • wire lampshade ring with a washer top
  • 22 gauge craft wire
  • 1500 drinking straws, but this number will vary depending on the size of the shade you'd like to make 
  • pendant light wiring kit
  • scissors
  • pliers
  • side cutters
  • this tute
