Materials: Ikea PS2012 bowl, Variera drawer mat clear, wire, cold light bulbs

Description: Cut the drawer mat in 8 cm wide strips, following the same direction as it is rolled (this way when cut, the strips will get curly)

Then, cut again every strip following the pattern between the dots, alternating strips with one and two dots. Leave the center of the large strip uncut, approx. 8 cm.



Use four large strips crossed to wrap the bulbs (non-incandescent, of course, for safety reasons). Attach the strips to the bulbholder (it has to be good quality in order to avoid overheating) with a plastic fastener.


Hang the wrapped bulbs at different heights with transparent wire through the holes of the PS2012 bowl.

Finally attach the bowl to the ceiling with a regular lamp clamp, and comb the curly strips to your taste.

Enjoy the marine effect :-)

CAUTION: Possible fire hazard if used with incandescent light bulbs and unsuitable fixtures
