Botanical Wall Lights


I have in my living room two of the ugliest wall lights I have ever come across. At this point I haven’t found the right replacements at the right price, although I’m sure to come across something nicer one day!

Seriously, these things are hideous:


So I decided to try and make them slightly less ugly with the help of some pressed botanicals.

I chose to use ash tree leaves which I laid between the pages of a big fat book on embroidery.


After a week, the leaves were nice and flat and had dried neatly.

I took the frosted glass panels out of the lamps, slathered them in mod podge and glued the leaves onto the glass.


Once the glue was dried, I trimmed the edges and gave the panels a coat of clear gloss spray for durability.

They’re a definite improvement, and will do until the right sconces make their way into my life!
