DIY Basket Pendants

DIY Basket Pendant Lights - lizmarieblog.com

When we built our home 3 years ago, we didn’t give much thought to the lighting. We went with all standard builder grade lighting knowing that we would most likely switch it all out later. Well, here we are 3 years later, one year before we put our house up for sale, switching out the lights. I have been searching for pendant lights for quite some time now for over the bar area, but I didn’t want to commit to anything because I could never find a ceiling fixture and pendant for over the bar at the same time. While browsing through target the other day I spotted these awesome baskets & knew right away I wanted to make some DIY pendants for the kitchen & for $8 a basket, I couldn’t beat the deal even if these lights were just temporary.

These pendants were so simple to make. I used the existing down rod from the builder grade pendants & simply used the exsiting socket ring to measure the hole that I needed to cut out on the baskets. Using a saw bit on my dremmel I cut the hole for the socket. After that it was easy to slip the socket through the hole & screw on the socket ring. I used CFL bulbs because they are cooler than incandescent bulbs just so that there wasn’t excessive heat near the basket material. These light fixtures put out a lot of light and are just as bright as the old ones. If you do not have an existing down rod and light kit you can purchase them from Lowes or any hardware store for pretty cheap & the kits are really easy!

I love how these DIY basket pendants turned out & how they add a “custom feature” to our home. As you can see, I have cleared the clutter from our kitchen and dining area. I wanted a fresh clean start, so I cleared most of the decor our and I’m kind of enjoying the freshness of being clutter free. I’ll updated pictures on the room as I move some decor back in the space. What do you think of our new pendants? Have you made pendants before? What did you you use? I would love to hear from you.
