Another Hanging Lamp You Can Make


I am always looking for interesting ways to light up a room. When I saw this metal art sphere at Hobby Lobby, I knew it would make a cool lamp. It was very easy and only took about 10 minutes including the time to hang it.

Besides the metal sphere, I needed a hanging light kit a vintage light bulb, wire and some wire cutters.

First, I centered my light cord so that the bulb hung below an intersection of the metal strips of the sphere.

I then secured the cord with the wire. Do not wrap too tight or you may damage the protective coating on the light cord. - It's a way of life!

I added the light bulb and hung it from the ceiling. I specifically used a vintage bulb because: 1. it looks cool and 2. a regular bulb didn’t fit through the spaces in the sphere.

We would like to see any lamps you have tried. Please comment below.
