Air balloon ceiling light for less than 10,00 Euro

Materials: Regolit, white rattan basket, ribbons, glue gun

Description: Three years ago while decorating my son’s bedroom I desperately searched for an air balloon ceiling light. Everything I found was too expensive for my budget and so I decided to make one myself using Regolit (lattern), a white rattan basket (also bought from IKEA)and lots of ribbons.

I glued the ribbons with glue gun. I also made the sacks that are hanging with the fabric I had left over from the curtains (also from IKEA)…So I guess my ceiling light is 100% IKEA hack! And it only cost me approximately 10,00 Euro…not bad at all!!!
