In my recent obsession with chicken wire I have fallen in love with these simple pendants for side lighting. They are pretty and have the perfect dose of whimsy that I love seeing around my home. I made a couple in different colors and used them to to back a party cake this weekend.

To make the chicken wire pendants; purchase and mold chicken wire into a pendant lamp shape. Paint the chicken wire using a wire brush and acrylic paint. Once dry run thin wire criss cross atop the pendant and secure a light socket kit. They make fun impact for a party backdrop and look great at home too!
