We have currently been redecorating Skylar's room (a room tour isn't too far away). One of our favorite projects was decorating her hanging light. All we used to make this cute, hanging light was:
- Hanging Light (we got this one at Lowe's)
- Lampshade (from Target)
- Tassels (learn how to make them on yesterday's blog post)
- Decorative ceiling medallion (you can get them at the hardware store)
- Spray paint
- Hot glue gun
First, we spray painted the ceiling medallion to match the rest of the room. We used double sided tape to hold the medallion while we screwed the light fixture into place. This held the medallion tightly in place so that Jake could wire the light.
Next, we made our tassels. Make however many you think will fit and look good on the shade, we chose six tassels. We then divided the circumference of the bottom of the shade into six sections and hot-glued the tassels at each section. You can add more or less depending on the size of the shade or the look you are wanting. And that's it! It's a simple project that adds a special touch to the room.
