Basket Light Fixture and Fairy Light Globe.

5 Materials
1 Hour

This project was a win win. I got two for the price of one!! I updated my ugly ceiling light and repurposed the globe for an accent light elsewhere.

I picked up this basket at The Goodwill!

I can't wait to see this lit up at night!

I knew when I purchased this basket it would be for something special.

I used a chalk pen to mark my opening.

I then used my jig saw to cut the opening out.

I removed the globe fixture and put hooks in the holes.

I fed twine through the basket in 3 spaced areas. Then I just tied them to the hooks and that's it!! Easy basket chandelier!!

I made a base for my globe light out of some scrap wood.

I painted it to give it an aged look.

I just popped some battery operated fairy lights in the globe and set it on my base. I'll probably move it around until I find the perfect home for it. But all in all I'm pretty happy with how these projects turned out!!

      Yes. It's about 2 different projects. Basket light fixture & Fairy light. 😃

    How are you turning the fairy lights on and off? Are they battery operated or plug in and how did you run the cord to get to the on - off switch or plug in?
