5 DIY Lights You’ll Lust Over

I’m always drawn to lights. Anyone can plug in a boring lamp, but when I see lights that look a little different, or are made from something unique, I get super excited. I’m never great at DIY anything. I can admit that to you because you’re my BFF blog reader. However, these DIY lights are kind of easy to make – which I believe means there is hope for me yet.

1. This hanging umbrella light from Instructables is a DIY project that doesn’t require any hard-wiring.
