Designer Light Fixtures: Make Jelly Light Fittings @ Reward Me

Make jelly lights

Follow these step-by-step instructions and make a pendant light from an ordinary light fitting. Or opt for the easier version and attach jelly moulds to a string of fairy lights.

You will need:

  • Aluminium jelly moulds
  • Small light-bulb sockets and bulbs
  • Electrical wire
  • Electric drill
  • Metal drill bit (the same thickness as the light bulb’s screw cap)
  • Epoxy glue
  • Sandpaper
  • Wooden block to work on

To make:

Step 1 - Place the mould on the wooden block. Drill a hole through the middle of the mould through which the light bulb’s screw cap will fit.

Tip: Aluminium is very soft and bends very easily, so don’t drill it without using the support of the wooden block.

Step 2 - Sand the bottom of the jelly mould to smooth it and check that the screw cap will fit through the hole.

Step 3 - Place the jelly mould upside down. Mix a bit of epoxy glue and apply it around the hole – a toothpick works well for this.

Tip: If the jelly moulds are small cut the sockets slightly shorter.
