DIY Light Challenge

DIY Lighting Challenge


I have a love affair with lighting. Lights are akin to your home’s jewelry. But, that “jewelry” can be expensive unless you DIY your own light fixtures. How about you? Do you like to make your own light fixtures or lamps?

If you do too, I’m thrilled to be hosting a DIY Lighting Challenge in February. A few other blogger friends and I have been challenging each other once a month to create according to a theme. This was my month, so I’m throwing down the glowing gauntlet and challenging you to make your own light fixture or lamp.

If you want to join in the fun, take the rest of the month to create your own DIY Light. You have until Monday, February 29th. On that day, I’ll share my DIY Light project with you and you can share your’s with me in a InLinkz link up.

Ready? Set! Go!

Need some inspiration? I created an entire Pinterest board of DIY Lighting Ideas. Use the hashtag #DIYLightingChallenge if you want to post some teasers.

Or you can check out some of my tutorials:

    The only one that actually looked good in my opinion is the one of the world map. The others looked either ugly or childish.

    Hi Brittany Bailey

    Impressive 🙂
    Great work carried by you. Surely will try to get one of these.

    Loved the Vintage Map Lamp Shade. It’s really something i would like to work upon.
    Waiting for your next work.

    Good day
