An amazing lamp can really make a space sing. And, while chandeliers are stunning focal points that light up a room, store-bought versions can be pricey, especially if they're large or intricate. But did you know you can make one yourself? We've rounded up seven DIY lighting fixtures that are made from things you probably have around the house, although you'd never guess it.
From a pendant fashioned out of plastic spoons to a fun string light hack using egg cartons, these ideas will give your home a warm glow -- and impress your guests.
