5 col

Difficulty: Easy

Materials:
(6) 14" round wicker baskets
11' steel ring pendant cord
Baby zip ties
Scissors/blade
1 LED light bulb

Steps:

1. Begin by facing a pair of baskets on top of each other so they create a sphere-like shape



2. Thread a baby zip tie through the weave of the baskets to hold them together as seen below



3. Continue to connect the pair of baskets with the baby zip ties until they are securely fastened together – four zip ties per basket is recommended. Cut off the excess zip ties



4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make three basket spheres
5. Arrange the baskets in the order you want them to hang



6. Once the basket order has been established, cut an “X” in the top of the middle basket with scissors or a blade



7. Screw the LED light bulb into the 11' steel ring pendant cord, and insert the bulb into the middle basket through the “X” incision



8. Identify which basket will be the outer top basket, and make an “X” incision in the bottom and top to insert the power cord



9. Pull the excess cord through the top basket so it is directly on top of the middle basket



10. For more stability, attach the spheres by zip-tying the bottom to the top as seen below



11. Repeat step 10 for the last basket sphere so all baskets are secure and zip-tied together
