Intro: String Lights Lamp
Great use of string lights and old fluorescent ceiling fixture.
I found this on the sidewalk and knew I couldn't just leave it!
Here's how I reworked this flexible plastic piece into a very sweet wall lamp..
Step 1: The Fluorescent Shell
This is extremely lightweight and flexible, it also has a natural inside lip that will be used to hang it with.
It was in great condition, nonetheless I gave it a good rinse in the shower then wiped dry.
Step 2: String Light Source
I happened to have these white stringed white lights... Perfect for this project. Although they gave a beautiful glow to the room, I felt that the frosted white shell and the hidden wires would give a very sleek but still sexy look.
Step 4: Attaching String Lights
Easy! A lil scotch tape and some amateur winding skills accomplished this. Just slowly tape with small pieces the string lights throughout the lighting shell... Don't over think it :)
Step 5: Attach to Wall
Simple: 2 small nails to hold this very lightweight light fixture. If you would like to get a ill more complicated you could hang this lamp vertically as well.
