With a few steps you can make this super cool and modern wooden bead lamp!
You will need:
lamp set (cord, socket, and plug)
large wooden beads (I used about 35)
small screw driver
Add the socket to the cord. (There are plenty of helpful how-to videos online to show you how to do this.)
Place all the wooden beads on the cord.
Attach the plug to the cord according to the instructions.
Screw in a low-watt bulb and your lamp is ready!

This great DIY chandelier comes from Brunch at Saks. It takes about 6 hours to make this, but it is so worth it!
Materials:- 1 box wax paper- 2 sheets of parchment paper- (1 1/2") hold punch- a wire lamp shade or planter (I used a hanging plant basket that I spray painted white)- fishing line- wire
Sandwich 5 sheets of wax paper between the parchment paper and iron together. Wax paper will stick together and become one hard sheet. Repeat with additional stacks of wax paper until you have at least 10 hard sheets.
Iron the paper so it will combine together.
Use 1 1/2" hole punch to create shells.
Place a drop of glue at the end of each shell and connect until you have 5 in a row.
Cut a piece of fishing line about 8 inches. Add a drop of hot glue at the top of the row of shells and place the end of the fishing line in glue.
Tie row of shells to the top of chandelier.-Repeat until entire top row is filled.Add a row of wire midway around the planter and continue with additional row of prepared shell strands.- Add a last row of wire on the bottom of the basket and repeat with last row of prepared shells.
This shows us that we can do alot with little! Don’t throw anything away; rather, re-purpose it (if you have the time!) and go to flea markets and thrift stores to score a good deal!
When making a soup, sauce, or casserole that ends up too fatty or greasy, drop in an ice cube. The ice will attract the fat, which you can then scoop out.
Really great idea and easy to make.You will need: Glue gun, white plastic cups, double braided jute twine, a knife & a pair of scissors.
