Why buy a generic IKEA fixture when you can DIY one yourself with the Inspireramera Pilates Ball Lamp Tutorial? The ingenious idea is seemingly simple yet produces an eye-catching light fixture fit for a magazine cover.
The process starts off by blowing up an ordinary workout ball and covering it in plastic saran wrap. Using wallpaper paste and paper cords, allow the string to soak in the glue before wrapping it around the protected surface. The more random and layered you go, the more fantastic it gets. Make sure to leave space for the light source to be weaved into. After you allow the glue to dry overnight, the ball is deflated to reveal the chic lamp fixture.
The Inspireramera Pilates Ball Lamp Tutorial shows how crafty home owners can create conversation-worthy pieces on a limited budget.
