toutencarton DIY Faux Capiz Shell Flower Pendant Light - Addicted 2 Decorating® I’m halfway through with Master To-Do List Item #89 — find or make bedside lighting for our bedroom. I made a faux capiz shell flower pendant light. This was one of the most time-consuming projects I’ve done, but I just worked on it a little bit each day. Some people read or crochet in the evenings to unwind and relax. I cut out petals for my pendant light. I still need to make one more, so it’s a good thing I find the process relaxing and enjoyable! I love how it turned out! Here’s how I made it… My mom used to have two of these faux capiz shell lights in her living room… When we redecorated her house a few years back, she took them down and put them in storage. While I love just about any type of chandelier or pendant light made with capiz shells, my favorite ones are the round flower lights. So I decided to use the glass globe and the shade holder from my mom’s old lights and create my own. It took me a while to find the perfect material to make my petals. I love how it turned out!

DIY Tuesdays: Flower Fairy Lights I’ve been browsing for outdoor wedding decor and I happened stumbled across this easy DIY project from Apartment Therapy. So cute for a summer wedding! What you’ll need: - Fairy lights (Christmas lights) - Vellum paper in your wedding colors - Scissors Here’s my simplified version of the project: Step 1: Cut 5 inch squares of vellum paper. Step 2: Fold the left and right corners up to meet at the center, forming a diamond shape. Step 3: Cut curves along the open edges to form a heart-shaped top and create the petal effect (see my photo below). Step 4: Snip the tip of the bottom of the triangle – remember to cut small enough that it won’t fall off the lights but wide enough so you can pass through each fairy light. Although it is unlikely that these tiny lights will catch on fire, you don’t want to worry about that on your wedding day!

TetraBox Light by Ed Chew 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.

DIY Doily Light: Simple Suspended-Sphere Lace Lamp Shade So simple a child could make it – and have fun in the process, too. And the result? A shining example of how light and shadow can work together to brighten up a room. Swedish craftswoman Isabelle Dos started with a simple party-shop balloon, blown up big and wrapped in white lace place settings painted with wallpaper glue. The soaked material sticks readily to the sides of the inflated sphere, overlapping to form a contiguous shell, suspended and left to dry overnight like a plaster cast. Pop the balloon and presto: a little cut in the top lets you drop in a bare bulb and create your own chandelier, potentially using whatever pattern you want (if lace feels a little too old-fashioned) to frame the outside and filter the light.
