Lighting fixtures often cost an arm and a leg when you buy them at the store, but these yarn-made lighting solutions offers up a fantastic way to create beautifully designed lights on a budget.

With minimalist design techniques taking over mainstream culture, a lot of interior decor items are subsequently featuring subtle colors and simplistic structures. This DIY yarn fixture is able to fit right in line with these minimalist designs by using a sleek spherical structure as its base. Simply inflate a balloon to your desired size, wrap your yarn around the entire balloon creating a scattered design, and then paint over it with glue. Once the glue and yarn is completely hard, pop the balloon and then cut out a small hole in the bottom of the structure so that it's big enough to place your light fixture through. Simply choose where you would like to hang this simple piece of artwork and you're done!

Featured on the blog 'Honest to Nod,' this DIY project is a great way to decorate your home with sleek fixtures without breaking the bank.
