The 'Before' looked a little naked:
So, instead of buying mini-shades, I tried a very Mich upcycle:
As you have guessed, 'tis another project in my ongoing quest to recycle the Sbux cups that accumulate in my life. This time, all I used was lids.
The DIY is very, very easy. Here goes.
Trim away a lid's outer edge and center, then flip inside out:
Nest four of them together.
Slip the nest down over the socket base.
Important reminder: the plastic is flammable, so make sure it does not touch anything hot! I don't recommend using incandescent bulbs. I used florescent candle bulbs, which have a cool-to-the-touch ceramic base.
Do this with all the sockets, and you are done! In my five-arm chandy, that's twenty cup lids transformed instead of tossed.
Cup lid ruffles - why not? They made me happy this week.
Thanks as always for coming to visit! I really appreciate you guys. I hope you take some creative time for yourself soon.
You have outdone yourself this time Mich. Superb! By the power vested in me by my keyboard and internet connection, I hereby Crown you the "Queen of Upcycle" LOLReplyDelete
This is a simple but cute idea! I really enjoyed it. You can also spray paint the plastic matching with chandelier metal color. Very well Mich :)ReplyDelete
They'd make me happy too except for when I had to dust them. Clever girl!ReplyDelete
Love it Mich!!! Makes the chandelier look swankier! :)ReplyDelete
