These kitchy-catchy hanging lamps below are constructed from old school Tupperware containers. You got your Jello mold, colander, and of course the brutally orange mixing bowl to choose from. You can buy them from Oak Boston, but this would also make an easy DIY project for anyone with hand-me-down kitchenware lying around. In fact, you can use any number of odd items lying around your home. I found two items (an old hub cap left by a previous tenant in my basement, and a broken paper umbrella from Chinatown) and fitted them as shades over ceiling light fixtures in my apartment.
Check out the results...
For the hubcap I drilled out the middle hole which then screwed on to the existing spindle of the light fixture. I also drilled out a few small light holes for that disco ball effect!
The paper umbrella took a little trickery to keep the canopy extended after removing much of the supporting structure so that the light fixture could be fit through. This shade could also work inverted or back lit, I chose this method to hide an ugly hanging chain.
