Some people have asked if it’s possible to install their custom drum lampshade onto a pendant light kit so it can hang from the ceiling. There are three answers to this question - yes, oui & sí! All you need to do is disassemble a standard pendant light kit so the lampshade can be attached. See my video tutorial on this project below.

 

 

 

  

The lampshade featured in this tutorial was created using one of my DIY lampshade kits. These kits have what’s called a 'spider' ring. Most lampshades in the US utilize a spider ring, which is handy because your pendant light kit cord can be thread through the spider ring very easily.

After acquiring the pendant light kit of your choice, dis-assemble the ceiling mount so you can thread the cord through the top of the lampshade. Depending on the kit, you might also need to disassemble part of the socket so the lampshade hangs securely. Then simply re-assemble the ceiling mount and any other attachments.

HI, thank you sooooooooooooooooooo much. I had just created a beautiful standard drum lamp shade for a Boho look and could not find any information on how to hang a standard lamp shade to hang from the ceiling. I now know that you can disassemble the light kit and thread the wiring and hang. I am so glad I came across your post. I can not thank you enough.
