An individual I know actually made her own caged lights to hang above her dining room table. She mounted three large wire baskets on a plank of wood. It came out great! Here is a tutorial from Whipperberry’s blog with step-by-step instructions for a similar project.

What you need:

  • A Metal Basket
  • Pendant light cord set
  • Pendant light conversion kit
  • 3/8″ non-metal clamp connector
  • Step drill
  • Vintage light bulb (optional)
  • Round metal file

Step 1: To begin you need to drill a hole into the bottom of your basket.

Step 2: the edges were pretty rough so he filed down the edges with a round metal file.

Step 3: Place the clamp connector into the hole and secure.

Step 4: Cut the plug off the pendant light and feed the cable through the clamp.  Secure the clamp.
