This article shares the exact steps we used to make this easy DIY Basket Light Fixture!
I shared this Easy DIY Basket Light Fixture almost a year ago, and so much has changed in our home since then. Originally I wanted the basket light to fit with our boho sheek bedroom. But as time went on and we figured out a style we loved for our home and also for our bedroom. So I ended up moving the fixture to my office which fits with my decor way more than our European Farmhouse bedroom.
My inspiration for the DIY Basket Light Fixture was this beautiful pendant light from Serena and Lily. But as I’m sure you know they are expensive and I just didn’t want to invest in a new light right now. So that’s how this DIY was born.
The materials are very simple, you will want to find something that goes with your style and vibe.
Tools like this drill set
or this basket from Ikea
DIY Basket Light Guide
The first thing you should do is find the middle of the basket, where the cord from the light will go through.
Once you found the middle, drill a hole very carefully. Ensure it is big enough to fit the cord through but not overly big so it doesn’t sit weirdly.
Put the light fixture together, as it comes in pieces and you will need to follow the instructions to set it up.
Choose the height you want your new light to be, and how low you want it to hang.
Once you have the logistics figured out its time to put everything together.
If you don’t have experience installing lights then seek a professional. It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be, but I still wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly.
This was a very simple DIY to make that instantly changed the mood of the room. Not to mention it’s created a conversational piece that everyone always asks about.
