DIY to Try | Basket Lamp

I always have ideas for different DIY projects, especially hacking store-bought products to make something new, but often I don’t have the time or need to make all of them. So I thought I should show my ideas anyway so that someone can use them to make something they love. DIY to Try is inspiration waiting to happen!

When I first saw this new basket, Höjdare, at Ikea I fell in love. I love the shape of it and it’s also very affordable. It comes in two sizes: smaller is 32cm diameter and the bigger is huge with 50cm diameter. They come in three colors and natural color. You can of course use them as lovely storage but the shape would be perfect for making a pendant lamp.

What do you think? Would you like to make one for yourself?
