Diamond Himmeli Pendant Light!
I made this adorable diamond pendant light for my daughters room!
It's simple and uses 2 things from Ikea.
I love a good Ikea hack!
You will also need craft wire, scissors and a ruler.
And one small zip tie.
So cheap! Ikea lights are $5 and the straws are $2.You will need 15 straws:
6 remain the full 8 inches
Cut 18 Three inch pieces
and 6 two inch pieces
String on the 6 two inch pieces.
Twist the wire.
If you run out of wire, cut another length and twist it on.
I think I used about 8 yards of wire, but only about 2 yards at a time.
wiring it on for more stability.
across the center with each section twice.
And wrap them tight around the wire of the pendant light.
Then I just tightened a zip tie above the wires to keep everything tight and in place.
It does not get hot during use, so it is fine to be this close to the plastic straws.
Do not use a light that gets hot.
light kit from Ikea.
Looks amazing and matches the rest of the diamond themed room!
Come back tomorrow for the full room reveal!!!
Plus, she can get tucked in bed and then use the remote to turn off her light.
Easy for late night reading.
