We've all seen a flush mount ceiling light like the one above, right? Some people like to call 'em "boob lights", and it's obvious why. They can be quite dated and lacking personality, so I wanted to give these ones in Our DIY Camper 2.0 a budget-friendly upgrade!

Using this Rustoleum Pure Gold Spray Paint, these wooden beads, this macrame string and some leftover cardboard, I made these DIY boho beaded light fixtures!
I love how they add texture and a bit of boho glam style to our camper. They only cost me $7 to make, and I'm liking how they're holding up in the RV so far!
Watch my YouTube video to learn how to make these DIY boho beaded light fixtures from start to finish:
I used my Cricut to cut the cardboard templates, and you can access my Cricut design file here if you want to do the same. Alter the size of the template and material you cut to suit your fixture.
You could also use different materials to make the rings the beads attach to. Some other ideas are embroidery hoops (drill holes in them) or metal rings (wrap the macrame cord around them).
You could also vary the way you attach the beads to the metal fixure dependent on your situation. I used Gorilla hot glue sticks for the camper, but you could also screw the beads directly to the fixture. The options are endless!
I think these DIY boho beaded light fixtures turned out pretty great for only 7 dollars, and they'd be easy to change out if I ever tire of them.
I can't wait to share more of our camper renovation with you soon! The main room is almost complete and it's looking so fresh and fun.
Tell me: What do you think of this DIY boho insired light fixture upcycle?
I think it is very Cute!! Good idea. Barb
I love this idea, it looks so pretty and unique.
I love it and am trying to do the same in my laundry room since reading this! I can’t get your Cricut file to open though, I’m new to cricut so I’m not sure if something’s wrong or if I’m doing something wrong.
Since the structure is permanently attached to the fixture, how would you change the lightbulbs if one were to go out? Would it fit in between the strands of beads?

You can move the beads around to sneak one in 🙂

I would love to know how your vinyl plank flooring is holding up. Did any pop up?
I'm making plans to redo our motorcoach flooring.

Our vinyl plank flooring is holding up great. No problems so far.
