DIY Dollar Tree Modern Wall Sconces – So Easy & Budget Friendly | Home Decor Ideas


(upbeat, rhythmic music) – [Tresha] Hey guys, welcome
back to the channel with Tresha and I have been doin’ some
searching on the internet lately, and I saw that modern wall lights are pretty expensive these days. So I figure anybody who’s
lookin’ for wall lights probably don’t wanna
pay these kinda prices. So if you’re on a budget I will show you how you can make your own for $4 using only Dollar Tree supplies. So let’s get started. At the Dollar Tree I purchased
these alphabet blocks, a pack of drinking
straws, a paper lantern, and a round mirror. The first step that I did was remove the light from the lantern. Using E6000 and a dab of hot glue I attached the block to the light. (lively, melodic music) Next I cut the straws to
get rid of the flexible tip. Next I hot glue each straw to the light. If you notice, I’ve
formed a specific pattern, but you can create your own pattern. There are so many ways. I found some of the straws were too long so I decided to cut it down. Afterwards I went outside
and spray painted the straws using a silver metallic paint. I bet it will look really
pretty in other colors too. Next I flipped over the mirror
and removed the felt pads. This will allow me to have a flat surface. Then I added E6000 to
the back of the block and glued it to the mirror. Once the glue was dry I added command strips to the back of it and pressed it on the wall. Now you have modern wall lights you can stick anywhere you want. What do you guys think? What other ideas come to mind for you? If you would like to
