Geometric Pendant Light – Home Depot Gift Challange

Home Depot Gift Challenge

Hi Friends!,

Welcome to the 2nd project in the Home Depot Gift Challenge. Each month 12 creative bloggers are given an item/material from Home Depot to purchase, transform and use in a gift. Last month I used a copper tee to create a cute little cabinet handle. This month our material is wood dowels and the gift recipient is a child. * Home Depot is not affiliated with this challenge in any way.

Geometric Pendant Light

For this challenge I created this Geometric Pendant Light for my boys.  I am working on putting together a little reading (Chill Zone) area where they can relax , read, and work on puzzles in their bedroom.

 

Tools for Geometric Pendant Light

Materials

 

start of the geometric pendant

My first step was to build a frame around the light swag. This was easier than cutting the swag and rewiring it later.

I continued to build a cage around the light. I cut the dowels with my oscillator tool as I works. I did not map everything out before I started. This was a “fly by the seat of my pants” lamp.

I attached the dowels with hot glue. Once the lamp structure was complete, I coated it with gold spray-paint. Gold is one of my son’s favorite colors.

For contrast I wrapped embroidery thread around the  swag base.

Little reading nook

Most importantly, my guys like  their new reading space.

    Wow! You’re so clever! Such a cute light fixture that looks expensive, but was probably super cheap! A cute little reading nook, too!

    I love it! I have a tendency to want to turn everything I see into a light fixture, but I wouldn’t have thought of this one!
