paper lantern pizzazz

Oona made this pendant lamp for my bedroom. It is all the right good things – cheap, beautiful, and easy to do.

Oona created the lamp in a marathon of TV watching of Law & Order or Hell’s Kitchen late into the night. It is a dramatic light fixture for very little money. I saw a tutorial on Design Sponge – click here for her post with more how-to photos.

So simple to make, it requires only a few materials:

– a round paper lamp shade purchased at Ikea
– paper
– wood glue
– a cool to the touch LED lightbulb. I bought a dimmable one.

This light fixture cost under $20 to make.
