DIY Ceiling Light Ideas Incorporating Red West Elm Cord?

Good Questions

Q: I bought a red cord set from West Elm a month or so ago to make a ceiling light for my boyfriend, since he is currently using a table lamp on the floor. I figured I'd be able to come up with something but after weeks of looking for ideas online, I'm stuck. I'm a fairly crafty person and I'm not afraid of power tools, but most of what I find online is really girly. Help me please!
