DIY : Yogurt Container Turns Into Cute Pendant Light

I am all about upcycling. In fact, some of my favorite projects are repurposing projects because they really get my creative juices flowing. That being said, I am always up for a creative challenge.
I am a LOVER of yogurt. One of my favorite weekday breakfast choices is Mountain High Plain Yoghurt with granola, honey, and fresh berries. It tastes delicious and it is healthy too!
But the NEXT best thing about the Mountain High Yoghurt containers is that you can repurpose them into something really special. I browsed the Mountain High Yoghurt’s Pinterest page for some inspiration. I saw many talented diy bloggers turn these containers into gorgeous succulent planters, penholders, and tissue boxes. But, I wanted to go a little more off book with this project.
How could i make this plastic yogurt container into something really fun and cute?
That’s when I had my idea. I knew I could make these containers in to cute ruffly pendant lights to hang in my living room.

Call me crazy… I know.

Some have a hard time imagining what that would look like. I thought I would break down the process.

First, the supplies you will need.
