How to: Make a birdcage pendant light
- Wooden birdcage
- Drill with a drill bit
- Cord set
- Light bulb
- Ceiling hook
1 Find the centre point on the top of your birdcage and drill a hole for the cord to pass through, using a drill bit that’s about the same diameter as the cord.
2 Unscrew the lighting hardware from the cord, pass the cord through the hole and reattach all the elements from inside the birdcage. Screw on the light bulb.
3 Suspend the light from the ceiling using a hook and plug in – or, to make it a mounted fixture, purchase a conversion kit at your local lighting store.
