50 Lighting Project DIYs

From Plastic Cup Chandeliers to Illuminated Wall Displays

— February 12, 2015 — Art & Design
These lighting project DIYs range from plastic cup chandeliers to illuminated wall displays that are designed to resemble expensive marquis lights. Fans of crafty home decor will fall in love with the lighting project ideas on this list.

Instead of breaking the bank on expensive, designer lamps, make your own using recycled materials. While plastic cups, bottles and containers are a great way to create an artistic and inexpensive shade or chandelier, recycled bike parts and other metal pieces are an alternative to traditional lamp stands.

If you're a fan of marquis lights but can't afford one, make your own using inexpensive materials and LED inserts. Furthermore, paint bulbs or repurpose old Christmas lights when creating a custom lighting fixture that will add personality to your home.
