DIY Pendant Lamp

Tuesday, February 22, 2011
Bravo! Ashley was so inspired by this ostrich chandelier that she decided to take matters in her own hands and created a more affordable version using this basic Ikea paper pendant lamp. Add some wax paper, shiny scotch tape and for a total of $12, you get this "Can't believe it's not ostrich chandelier"-beauty. Isn't it pretty? xoxo

P.S: Step by step insturctions!
