Simple contemporary light fixtures are difficult to find in your typical home store, and when you find them in a designer shop they are often way out of your budget. Here is a great tutorial to make a lovely fixture yourself for very little money.

Using an IKEA light and some other easy to find supplies you can create a great looking light fixture in a few minutes:

What You Need

  • Strips of wood veneer (you can also get 3/4 in. veneer at the hardware store that is for ironing on the edge of shelves - you can also use strips of paper)
  • White glue
  • Large clips (or clothes pins) - I started with four and found I needed more as I went along
  • Scissors
  • HEMMA ikea light
  • Pen
  • Small piece of cardstock
