I love the look of pendants made from thin strips of veneer. They're oh so pretty but they usually come with a pretty hefty price tag. In this project you can make your own for a fraction of what a designer shade costs and you'll get a little diy-pride to go with it!

We stopped in over at Poppytalk, where we saw Holly's latest DIY adventure.

With the help of some embroidery rings, thin strips of veneer are glued together using bulldog clips to help out. Both pieces are then gently pushed towards each other and just like that a baby pendant shade is born. And you thought they came from the stork. Surprise!

Make sure you hop over to Poppytalk for all the details on how to make your own. The process isn't tricky, but checking out the play by play will go a long way if you're interested in gluing one up yourself!
