Make your own bubble-inspired light fixture to hang by a bed or as an accent in any room! Whimsical, charming and inexpensive to do-it-yourself!
I’ve been wanting to make this light fixture for close to a year now! It was originally planned for the kids’ playroom to replace an old ceiling fan that didn’t have a light. But once I built my new brick accent wall, I knew it belonged there! And bonus that it was SO easy to put together and took less than a hour!🙌🏻
You can order everything you need and have it delivered to your door step. Gosh it’s a great time to be alive!🤪
I found it easier to string everything up if the cord of the light socket was hanging from a coat rack. If you don’t have a coat rack, maybe you can trick…I mean convince…your spouse into holding it for you. Or drape it over a curtain rod or hook on the back of your door!
Click together all of your clear ornaments. They arrive in 2 pieces that should click together easily. Be sure to line up the hanging holes.
Then tie a double knot of fishing line through the hole of your first ornament. Cut about 12 or so inches so you have plenty of line to tie it to the fixture too.
Start by tying your ‘bubbles’ around the cord of the light socket. I tied 4-5 around the same height to create the first row. Then worked my way down adding bubbles to fill out the look of it.
Make sure each row touches the row above it to cover up the light bulb inside. Once I got to rows 3 and 4, I tucked the fishing line into the sculpture so the bubbles hung below the previous row.
There’s no rule on how it should look as long as it looks good to you! If it looks like a bunch of grapes, then you’re headed the right direction!😆
Thanks for Checking In! ~Chelsea

It’s really hard to see the design since it’s against a white-washed wall … would love to see it with a black background. Love your ideas !
