Ikea Flowerpot to Hanging Light Conversion

On my last visit to Ikea I spotted these cute little lacy flowerpots.  And while looking at them I decided this would make a darling hanging lamp.

The first thing I did was to get my drill and bit and drill a circle of holes to create an opening to fit over the light kit socket.

I decided I wanted to add crystals to the bottom edge.

I glued the crystals around the edge following the scallops.

Then simply screwed it to the light kit, added the light bulb and plugged it in.

Love the way the light sparkles through the metal lace of the shade.

Happy Crafting!
