Basket Lighting

Hello everyone!

I’ve had a few people ask me how I made my basket lights and I wanted to share.  I have one in our mudroom and laundry closet. It is SO easy its almost silly to blog about. 😉


You need to simple things.  A basket you love, and a porcelain light.  We actually used porcelain lights while in the demolition phase and had many left over. But for only a few dollars, you can pick one up at the hardware store.

This basket I used was from my mothers basement.  I think it is called an antique egg basket, but I am sure Homegoods would have just what you need!

All you have to do is cut out the very center at the bottom of the basket, or with a basket like this, no cutting was needed.  I just pinched the wire at the neck of the porcelain light and it sits on their nice and snug!

Oh and p.s., that is a galvanized rod I used as a curtain rod!

Thank you again for stoping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. Love this! So stinking clever and am thinking about doing this in our hallway, the entryway. Gotta find the right basket! Xoxo
