DIY To Try: Modern, Deceptively-Simple Light
Fashioning this fixture is easier than you think.
Worried you don’t have the welding chops to create this ultra-modern chandelier? The good news is, you don’t need any! The intricate light fixture was creatively constructed by Finnish blogger Riikka Kantinkoski of Weekday Carnival, who used only the most basic materials and techniques. In fact, the entire how-to is a mere five sentences from start to finish.
The DIY entails a trip to the hardware store for the brass, the purchase of a concrete pendant light, and Riikka’s ingenious method for sculpting and combining it all. Although your finished product promises to have the same sleek, raw and refined feel as light you see here, the exact design will be all your own. Take a look — we never would have guessed crafting an architectural light fixture could be so simple.
