For my item, I chose to use an IKEA Ordning silverware caddy. And I decided to turn it into an industrial style light pendant. The project was so simple...but turned out absolutely darling.

To find out how I made the pendant, read more and see the video clip from my Studio 5 appearance, after the break.
To make your own industrial-style pendant, you will need the following supplies:
An Ordning Silverware Caddy
A Light Kit
A Light Bulb
1. Using the tin snips, begin by cutting a hole in the bottom of the silverware caddy that is the same diameter as the light kit.
2. Use the hammer to flatten out the edges of the hole you cut.
3. Remove the plastic ring from the end of the light kit, and insert the end into the hole you cut.
4. Attach the ring back to the end of the light kit on the inside of the silverware caddy, and add the light bulb.
(If you wish to add color to the cord, you can spray paint it using spray paint that bonds to plastic BEFORE you assemble the pendant.)
It's as simple as that! Great industrial-style lighting for less than $10 per pendant!
