DIY Cardboard Pendant Light

Poppytalk

Here's a useful way to repurpose all that excessive packaging from Amazon in one afternoon. With this crafty pendant light all aglow, it's hard to tell that it's made entirely of scrap cardboard!

The simple DIY makes use of nothing more than a sheet of corrugated cardboard, a can of spray paint, and a $5 pendant light cord from IKEA. Strips of cardboard are bent into pentagons, then layered and glued together to form a modern-looking fixture.
