Sometimes finding lighting solutions for large spaces or high ceilings can be overwhelming. Not because there aren't options out there to be had, but because they usually leave you financially crippled. We've had our eye on these large live fish baskets.

Although there isn't anything in these pictures to give you a size comparison, these baskets range from 3-4 feet in height to 15-20 feet tall! We think a pendant light (or a few) hung inside would round out the look nicely. You could even paper the insides if you wanted more of a glow instead of a harsh effect.

Try using smaller versions in more average size spaces, or even modify some with cross braces, ready to hold candles for your next outdoor party. The best part about these baskets is that even the largest one pictured (which happens to be the one with the faux-fish inside) was only $29.99! Fabulous!
