How To: Make a Tord Boontje-Inspired Garland Light (for $3.00 and in under 10 minutes)

Tord Boontje is a Dutch designer famous for his intricate, elegant cut designs, and one of Peaches' favorite artists. She says, "One of Boontje's best known commercial pieces in this beautiful Garland Light. If you have visited a museum gift shop in the last 4 years, you have probably seen one in person. They usually retail for around $100.00, which is surprisingly affordable considering all the awards its won, but still, I knew I could make one for less. Actually, $97 less."

That's right. She created this pendant lamp in no time, and for under $3.00.  

"Yup, this light cost exactly $3.00 and all materials can be purchased from the dollar store, or in my case, Ikea."

Materials:

  • $1.00, string of white twinkle lights (50 bulbs)
  • $2.00, two wire garlands (5 yards each, 30' total)
  • Free, one wire coat hanger (I like the skinny white ones)
  • Free, dental floss or thread to hang
