home: made [ cloud light ]
How about your very own cloud lighting up a room? Perfect for a kids room but cool enough to look grown-up in any room.
There are countless tutorials about DIY cloud light making, so we’ve rounded up a few.
Essentially, for a basic DIY cloud light you will need :
• a standard paper light shade, available on the high street and online from various stores including Homebase, IKEA, B&Q and Wilkos. The cloud light can then be hung from an existing ceiling light pendant
• cotton wool balls (and lots of them)
• a glue gun or PVA
Extras can include fairy lights to create a drizzle of ‘light’ rain from the cloud-looking shade, and you could also buy multiple shades in various sizes to create a bigger impact with a few clouds.
