Hemma planter

Published on May 25th, 2011 | by Jules Yap


Lamp from a hanging planter

Materials: Skurar hanging planter, Hemma cord

Description: I found this beautiful, doily pattern hanging planter at Ikea a few days ago.

It was just too pretty, to put only flowers in it, I wanted to use it in a different way: as a lamp, in my kitchen!

So, I turned the planter up side down, and drilled a hole, on the top of it.

Finally, I pulled hema cord, thru the hole. (first, I unjoined the upper part)
It is so easy, takes only 5 min! To remove the stickers from the item is much more difficult….;-)

    Sorry if anyone find this question silly, but I am very new to the whole DIY thing. How do you “unjoin the upper part” of the hemma cord set? Please help. Thanks a lot
