These flowers look like the prettiest climbing vines. But they're not just sweet by day -- they're radiant by night. Despite their enchanted appearance, they are simply holiday lights covered with faux flowers (we chose flame-hued silk poppies). Making this decoration doesn't require stitching, tape, or glue; all you need are silk flowers and a string of lights. Silk-Flower Party Lights How-To You'll need miniature holiday string lights for outdoor use, as well as silk poppies or other flowers (one for each bulb) with removable plastic stems and centers, available at crafts stores.
It’s a whopping 70 degrees in Brooklyn right now, so I’m going to get out from under the pile of packing boxes in our house and get some fresh air. Before I head out, I wanted to share this beautiful (and totally genius) DIY light project that graphic designer Gabrielle Guy created for a friend. After moving into a new house and finding an old lantern left behind, Gabrielle decided to cut strips from scrap paper and glue them onto the shade. Two days later, the result was an incredibly stunning artichoke-like lamp that looks expensive but cost close to nothing. I’m so impressed with this project that I had to share it as inspiration for the weekend.
Liquid to Light Designer Ed Chew takes a green step in the right direction with the TetraBox lamp, a light object made from discarded drink packets that would have otherwise ended up in landfills already packed to the brim. The design is achieved by unfolding the packets and refolding them into hexagonal and pentagonal sections that are then pieced together to form a geodesic sphere or any other desired shape. Here, the Epcot-like ball makes an attractive overhead light and casts an impressive web of shadows and shapes on the surrounding space.
There are so many fun crafty things that can be done with paper pulp egg cartons. When I came across these unique purple ones in the trash at my office (yes, I dug them out of the trash), I just knew they could be turned into something really spectacular. My idea? This paper pulp egg carton flower pendant light.

Since the dawn of time wire hangers and stretchy fabric have gone together like Romeo and Juliet, like peanut butter and chocolate, like Crayons and coloring books. You get my point. I think this lamp looks a lot like what Martha Graham would have in her home.
Freshly Picked Refrain Easter weekend is here, so forgive me if I get a little religious for just a minute. See, my girl Alison has one talented man on her hands.
I love the way the cherry trees outside my building bloom cheerfully each Spring. I wanted to bring the beauty of those cherry blossoms indoors so I made some out of tissue paper and to make them even more special I added LEDs These pretty lights are inexpensive and easy to make. They are made mostly from material found at a dollar store. You can make several branches for a spray of cherry blossoms to decorate your room. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
It’s been a little over two weeks since I set foot in an Anthropologie , and I’m still ogling their goodies online every day. Maybe twice a day. Okay, three or four times a day, but don’t judge me. There is one particular lamp shade that I am continuously drawn to. It’s such a unique design, and I wanted to adapt it for use in my own home.
in the Target catalog. Really. This is my dream house. Let's take a look inside... at my kitchen. It has gleaming white subway tiles, a library ladder for climbing up to reach my Chewy Dips granola bars that I keep hidden from the kids, and a chunky wood island that gives me additional storage for my deer treats and extra seating for any wildlife that stumbles in through that large hole in the wall.
