DIY Basket Pendant Light

I've been wanting to try making a basket pendant light for a while, and when I saw some cute baskets at IKEA last week, I knew they would be the perfect thing to turn into a light! 

Here are the supplies I used:

-A basket - mine is from IKEA

-A pendant light kit - available here

-Wire cutter

I cut a hole in the bottom of the basket with my wire cutter to allow the light cord to go through it.

Then I threaded the cord through it and hung it in my studio from a hook in the ceiling. So easy and inexpensive! I hope you have fun making one of your own!

When you look for a basket to use, try finding one that doesn't have handles and looks like it will be fairly easy to cut. However, for some of these baskets, you could cut off the handles, and they already have holes on the bottom. Here are some of my favorites from Amazon:
