In this tutorial, we will review how you can create the look of a wall mounted sconce without the need for any hard-wiring. No wires, no electrician needed. This is a great option for decorative lighting above shelving or artwork. Or, anywhere!
DIY Wall Sconce: No Hard-Wiring or Outlets Required!
Mount your light fixture on the wall per the directions specific to your chosen fixture. Just ignore the wires completely.
Next, screw the outlet socket adapter into the fixture where you would normally screw in a light bulb.
Put batteries into the puck lights and replace the back plate. Adhere the double-sided sticker that comes with with puck lights to the back cover of the light.
Stick the puck lights to the outlet adapters in the light. Some of these puck lights come with a remote to make it easy for you to control the lights from anywhere nearby. Otherwise, you'll click the light with your hand to turn on and off.
Now you have sconces on the wall without the need for an electrician! These puck lights vary in strength so get a high powered one if you want more light.
This trick works especially well for lights over a piece of art or even over a shelf in the kitchen or living room.
