I’ve always wanted to make some cool junk light from scratch. As in wires and sockets, the works. But thus far, I’ve cheated and have used existing lights or lamps.

But that sure doesn’t mean the cheat method can’t be cool! Take a look at these genius takes on the uniquest lighting out there!

Who needs tomatoes when you can have a cool chandelier instead?!

A mix of willow and grapevine branches are hiding the fact that there’s a thrift store chandy hiding inside.

Christmas is celebrated year around in a different way with this smokin’ cool chandy. Originally made for a family wedding, it now graces the store.

I think wind turbines should legally just be made to be cool wind turbine light fixtures! This is gorgeous!
