As we discussed in our History of Mid-Century Lighting series, the Sputnik Chandelier is an enduring decor item that's as hot now as it was when it was first invented in 1960.

The thing is, a genuine vintage Sputnik will set you back a few thousand dollars, at least! But it is possible to make your own sputnik chandelier and re-create the look at home on a budget.

 Here are some more chic DIY Sputnik projects that can give you a genuine mid-century modern look, without the genuine Antique Store price-tag :)

Jenny from Little Green Notebook made over a spindly IKEA chandelier with gold paint. The unlikely addition of some tiny plastic cups creates a significantly higher-end MCM look than the original fixture.

Another IKEA lighting hack which turns the otherwise blandly symmetrical silver/nickel Stockholm chandelier into a more spherical & sculptural form. The hacker simply placed the longest spokes in randomly, graduating to smaller spokes to the event out the ball-shape. Via Ikea Hackers

This mini-sputnik is a smaller version of the real thing, but has the same modern lines and unfinished brass construction to help conjure up the original.
