This week’s post is inspired by all things bright and beautiful with a collection of DIY projects that will light up your home (or someone else’s).

Vintage revivals show us how to create an on-trend lamp using fashion tights and a plain, low cost lamp.  The possibilities are endless and potentially stunning.  Check it out.

This next DIY project utilises a common household product to make sweet string lights.  Simply gather up some used milk cartons (the plastic kind) and get cutting. Re-creations project have a great step by step tutorial.

A project for those wanting a bit more of a challenge, this gorgeous DIY light bulb oil lamp is worth the effort.  It looks simply stunning as a table centrepiece. You could possibly use citronella and use it outside at night. Check it out at Instructables.
