  • How to make a hanging light. Rag Rug Pendant Lamp - Step 3
    Step 3

    1. Trim off the fringe and remove the strips of fabric from the rug
    2. Tie a knot at the base of the basket and start weaving around and around tying the strips of fabric to each other as you go
    3. Continue until you get to the bottom and secure with another knot
    *You could use just one, but I used two for my lamp
    5. Thread the cord through the base of one basket and screw in the eco-friendly bulb
    *Eco-friendly bulbs do not give off heat
    6. Wire the mouths of each woven basket together and hang
