We love a good DIY lighting project here at Curbly and this Scandinavian-inspired number is beautifully unique and incredibly easy. Want to see how it's done? Read on!
This light is the creation of Annaleena, a Scandinavian blogger, stylist, and photographer (trifecta!). I love its understated elegance and its ability to be customized to suit any interior: imagine a multi-colored version or a monochromatic variation in the hue of your choice! To get started, let's see what we'll need.
- Wire Lamp Shade (remove previous shade material)
- Fabric (this version used old bedsheets)
- Lamp and Cord Pendant Set
- Wooden Beads (optional)
Once you have your light installed/hung, begin creating long strips of fabric like you would for a rag rug. These will be tied to the wire shade and arranged loosely (for an airy feel) or however you like. Annaleena attached a few wooden beads to the loose ends for added interest, but you can create your light however you want.
For additional instructions, tips, and photos, check out Annaleena's guest post on emmas designblogg.
