Pretty DIY ribbon pendant lamp

My cottage DIY skills are fairly limited. Okay, they are basically non-existent. (I add that caveat with the snickers of each of my family members firmly in my mind.) I mean, I can paint and sand, and I even replaced the screen in the back door once. But every so often I come across a DIY project that even I would feel comfortable taking on. I felt that way when I saw this pretty ribbon pendant lamp by Pinecone Camp blogger Janis over at Poppytalk.┬áNot only is this light beautiful, but it also repurposes items you may already have around the cottage. Janis, a Vancouver-based interiors and lifestyle photographer, simply wrapped a ribbon of fabric, weaving it through the mesh every 6 inches or so, around an old wire waste basket (scored for $2, no less). She then snipped a hole in the bottom and added a “Hemma” cord set from good ‘ol Ikea. Voila, let there by light! Thanks, Janis!
