chicken wire pendants

In my recent obsession with chicken wire I have fallen in love with these simple pendants for side lighting. They are pretty and have the perfect dose of whimsy that I love seeing around my home. I made a couple in different colors and used them to to back a party cake this weekend.

To make the chicken wire pendants; purchase and mold chicken wire into a pendant lamp shape. Paint the chicken wire using a wire brush and acrylic paint. Once dry run thin wire criss cross atop the pendant and secure a light socket kit. They make fun impact for a party backdrop and look great at home too!

  1. Victoria, this is what I have been thinking for the lamp right under my ceiling fans. Do you think it would work design wise? Love the idea that it would make gorgeous shadow effect.

      Starlet, I think they would look great under a ceiling fan, especially if you did them longer and thinner, that could be very cool. You would have to figure out the electric issues though and be sure to match the style/color. Fun idea:)
