Last weekend I started working on my She Shed / Crafting Space.  The project is coming along nicely, but it needs lighting.

Work in Progress
For This Project You Will Need:
1-Ikea Hemma Cord or a pendant light cord
Silk Flowers
Bucket or heat proof container
Silk Flowers
Hot Glue gun
Screw driver

There are several different kinds of pendant light cords.  Make sure that you get the kind with removable rings.  This will allow you to secure the bulb to the shade.

I began this project with a small metal bucket (left over from another project).

Small Bucket
I used the flowers from an old floral headband that I wore to a party.

The band broke so I removed the flowers.

Disassemble the flowers.

One flower at a time, glue them to the bucket.

One the flowers were glued to the bucket, I folded the petals to over any blank spots on the bucket.

Trace the light base onto the bottom of the bucket.

Using a hammer and screwdriver, I cut our the hole.  Make sure to cut INSIDE the traced line.

Remove the cut metal - watch our for sharp edges!

Be careful of sharp edges!
Insert the lamp through the hole.

Secure the lamp with the lamp ring

The sharp edges will be covered.

Now just add a light bulb!

That's IT!
Ready to work!

Let There be LIGHT!
