Pendant Cloud Light

I was inspired by many bloggers that were making yarn/jute/rope hanging pendant lights.(sorry I don't remember bloggers names)  I liked them, very much, so much that I thought I could make these but step it up just a bit! So while I was at my favorite thrift store I saw they had bin after bin of bags of Halloween spider webs so I bought four packages for $.25 knowing all along that I wanted to make this light. I was not sure how it would turn out but it was worth a try since I had everything else at home~
 This is what I used: Large beach ball, webbing, elmers glue, corn starch, disposable gloves & baking dish~

I mixed corn starch 1/2 cup, with 4 oz glue, 1/4 cup warm water mixed it all together and soaked the webbing in the mixture then I very painstakingly opened the web, being careful not to stretch it out so much and just started to apply it to the ball.~

After I got it all around the ball I set it out to dry, I let it dry over night & when I brought it in to remove the ball I did not like what I saw so I made another mixture I applied another layer of the webbing but this time I did not soak it in the mixture instead I applied it to the ball dry & added the mixture to the webbing & ball in small amounts. I set the ball out to dry again, it started to rain so I had to bring it in which took a bit longer to dry~
I gently, very gently pried the ball from the webbing, I needed to go slow this stuff felt like brittle & thought it would just crack on me, but I dropped it & it did not shatter~

In order to attach the pendant to the electric component I used a large fluffy pipe cleaner, not only  was I able to attach it but, bonus it also covered the jagged edges from where I needed to cut the opening to take the ball out~


 The next few pictures are of the light on during different times of the night~




I might try something different the next time I make this light. I hope you will try this cool light project it was  fun & very easy! Thank you again Randee~big hugs!

Thank You & Many Blessings~
