Make your own diy light fixtures.

It’s time to shed some light on the problem of how to creatively add more light to your home. And it turns out, it’s actually quite an easy problem to solve with DIY light fixtures.

Lighting is one of the more commonly overlooked aspects of home decor in need of updating in many of our homes. When redecorating, many will shell out big bucks for new furniture, spend countless hours installing new flooring and agonize over color choices for the walls, but will still use the same old lamps and installed lighting fixtures. After spending a whole bunch on that new sofa and new bamboo flooring, there’s often not a lot left in the budget for new lighting. And for anyone who has visited a fancy lighting store, you may still be in shock from the prices. DIY light fixtures can be the solution that saves the day though–you get totally unique lighting to complement your new decor and without spending a small fortune.

From illuminated wine bottles to twinkling wall art, here are some DIY light fixtures you can create yourself to add unique lighting solutions to your home.
