How should I hang this lamp?

I have this lamp shade that I really love and I have this funky light bulb that is multi colored. When lit up inside the lamp shade it looks really cool!

But I don't have the proper lamp base.

so I found this long white cord and it will work but I just don't know where to hang out or how.

The "where" I can figure out...the "how" is where I need your help.

How should I hang it?


Thanks!

    Very cool shade! I have a hanging lamp. There's a chain coming off the top and it hangs from the chain so there's no stress on the cord. You can use a ceiling hook to hang it and let the cord dangle.

      Thank you! I love the color and the way it's cut out! :)

      I have a ceiling hook, just dont know how to put it in.

      I was hoping for something easier. LOL

      Thanks Libbie! I really love it too!

      The pictures I took last night with it lit up doesn't look too great. In other words, my room doesn't look pink. It's my camera phone.

      For some reason I felt I should make that clear. lol

    Find a location where you can plug the electrical cord in (I suggest near a corner of your room) and hang a large screw-in hook to run the cord onto so the electrical cord isn't bearing the fun weight. I suggest the corner so the lamp can be hung where people aren't walking under it and the designs will reflect off the two walls beautifully. Love that lamp!

      Thank you Janice!

      I like the idea of hanging it in a corner bc yes the funky lighting will reflect off the 2 walls!! :)

      Is this the hook you arr referring to (1st pic)? Or something more simple (2nd pic)?

    I was envisioning the first one on the left.....but guess the other type would work as well.

    Oh, correct. I think you have to counter-sink an anchor or some such thing and then attach the big hook to the protruding screw. We need to keep it simple and use the ones on the right....& be done! No one is going to look at the hook they'll be admiring the lamp and the designs it throws onto the walls.

    :)
