Make this easy D.I.Y wall light

You can make the wall-lamp shownin this image for less than $100!





A lightbulb – we used a clear halogen dolly lamp.

An extension lead – we used white but you could choose any colour.

A lamp holder – your local hardware will stock them or buy online.

A wall hook – these wall-planter hangers work really well.

A trusty electrician – to wire the extension lead to the lamp holder.




1. Ask your electrician to wire the lamp holder into the socket end of the extension lead.


2. Screw (or twist) your bulb into the lamp holder.


3. Secure your holder to the wall.


4. Twist your extension lead around the holder.


5. Plug in & turn on.
