DIY Pendant Lamp Of Enameled Colander

Using tin cans to make a pendant lamp is a very creative idea. Although what enameled colander? It also can be used for such task.

Making a pendant lamp from it is even simpler. Just drill a hole in the bottom for the wire and insert it. Attach a light bulb socket inside of it. That’s all that you need to do besides hanging the lamp. Similar lamp can be made of a large salad bowl.

    Hello Magda,

    I think buying a wiring kit would be more than enough. Of course it depends what parts the kit would have but most of them should work.
