21 DIY Lamps And Chandeliers Made Of Everyday Objects

Published 10 years ago

The DIY movement and the recycling movements have long been closely related – creating your own new stuff out of the remains of your old stuff is a great way to reuse materials that would otherwise enter landfills and save you money. Although not ALL of these ideas are recycling related, these DIY lamp and chandelier projects will keep your home beautifully lit and your wallet fat.

These projects involve various skill levels (and the gummy bear “candelier” is especially tricky if you can’t get your hands on plastic gummy bears), so whether you’re handy around power tools or if all you can do is cut and glue, you will still find a project in here that’s right for you. Some of these focus on using wasted/old materials, while others simply give you the chance to create yourself something you can’t buy in a store for dirt-cheap.
