You know you’re a slave to the Target Dollar Spot. Just like every other red-blooded woman in America. Target Dollar Spot is the place where you can load up on all the things you don’t need. Except for the wastebasket used into today’s DIY. This wastebasket is a must have. It’s costs THREE DOLLARS, friends. And for the low, low price of THREE DOLLARS, you can be on your way to a showstopper pendant lamp that is DIYable in a matter of minutes! Let me show you how it’s done.
A wire wastebasket – I got mine from the Target Dollar Spot for THREE DOLLARS!
A hot glue gun
Remove the floral bloom from its plastic stem. Just pull it off.
Use wire cutters to trim the floral wire into a 4-6″ length
Add a healthy dollop of hot glue to the end of the floral wire
Insert the glue-end of the wire into the hole in the bottom of the faux flower bloom. Let the glue dry completely
Add a little more glue along the edge of the wire and flower. This will make sure everything is securely in place.
Wrap the floral wire around the edge of the wastebasket. Continue doing this all around the wastebasket until the complete edge is full of flowers.
Feed the pendant lamp cord up through the inside of the wire basket. That’s it!
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A LITTLE $3 WASTEBASKET! It can grow up to become a DIY wastebasket pendant lamp!
the wastebasket for this project is from Target Dollar Spot, June 2017
