Add an industrial-themed look to any flush-mounted ceiling light by using a wire basket. Select a new or vintage wire basket that is fairly lightweight. Use a wire cutter to cut a round hole in the center bottom of the basket that is approximately the size of the ceiling light bulb socket. If desired, before fitting the basket on the ceiling fixture, weave colorful fabric strips in the basket rungs for added visual impact. Add a socket extender to the flush-mounted ceiling light canopy. Place the basket up to the ceiling canopy, and line up the basket hole with the extender hole. Screw in the extender to hold the basket to the canopy. Replace the light bulb for a ceiling lamp cover with an industrial edge.

Install Lighting In a Room With No Overhead Lights
Make an extremely easy lamp cover by attaching a drum shade to a flush-mounted, chrome-edged, ceiling fixture. Many older homes have unattractive fixtures that are completely flush with the ceiling and are also surrounded with chrome on all sides. The chrome is often magnetic. Take four ceramic, heavy-duty magnets, and place one on each corner of the chrome. Purchase a drum shade in a size that will cover the chrome area when it is attached. Decorate the shade with fabric adhered with spray adhesive, or use fabric glue to embellish with ribbons, buttons or vintage handkerchiefs. Take the finished drum shade, and position the metal shade rungs to the ceiling magnets for an extremely simple cover to an otherwise unattractive ceiling lamp.

Create a pendant ceiling light cover with a designer look with a decoupage technique. Purchase a pendant-style, glass lampshade from any big-box store. Shades that have a more open, funnel or circular shape are best, as they provide ample room for the paper decoration. Lay the shade on craft paper, and trace it to make a pattern for the decoupage paper. Use the craft paper as a template to cut out a paper shade shape from wallpaper, gift wrap, scrapbook or tissue paper. Varieties that are translucent are best to allow the light to shine through. Add a layer of hard-coat decoupage glue on the inside of the shade, and press the paper in place. Use an additional coat or two on top of the paper. After it dries, hang the shade on a pendant fixture for a cute ceiling lamp with maximum style.

Use a paper lantern as the basis for a decorative accent to any decor. Choose a hue of tissue paper that harmonizes with the design of the room. Ombre combinations, or those based on gradients of the same shade, are particularly stylish. Make a cardboard template in a shape of a 2-inch triangle with its corners more rounded than pointed to simulate a petal. Take a piece of double-sided tape and, starting at the bottom, lay them on the lantern in a row fashion. They are best when their edges are slightly overlapped. Repeat until the lantern shape is filled with petals. Hang the lantern from a C-hook on the ceiling for a ceiling lamp cover-up with optimal visual interest.
