The Contemporary Drinking Straw Pendant Light may seem a bit bright, but that’s the point of the invention. Despite being made out of colour drinking straws, the invention can act as a source of light. To put it all together, you will need be able to do a lot of wrapping, crafting and cutting to make sure it looks exactly like it should.
But in order to start making the cool “lamp” you will need the following:
- 1 roll of metal hardware cloth with 1/2 inch grid.
- A wire lampshade ring with washer top in the diameter of your choice.
- 22 gauge craft wire.
- 1500 drinking straws.
- Pendant light wiring kit (light socket might need to be bough separately).
Sure it looks a bit unusual, but the Drinking Straw Pendant Light can be a great addition to a bedroom or even a rec room. Plus, since the project only requires a bit of skill (paper mache artists will succeed) it’s definitely a worthwhile DIY that saves you the hassle of going lamp shopping.
