How To: Fish Scale Light

Last week I talked about possibly making the Cardboard Chandelier for the upstairs bedroom, and then I remembered this gorgeous DIY Fish Scale Light I saw on Design*Sponge:
OK - wow... Pretty sure this light kicked the cardboard chandy out of the race for the upstairs bedroom. (Sorry little fella...another time...) The colors are so rich, and I love how it's fish scale inspired so it's not entirely theme-ey like with eyes and fins and such.  The rope really ties into the natucial suggestion of it all too, which, coincidentally is what we're going for in that room. The hint of nautical without the life preservers, oars, and beach fence headboards.  (Nothing against those, this is just a tiny room and needs only a hint!) Think Deep blues, greys, Navy & red. So much fun!

I've rambled long enough, hop over to Design*Sponge for the full tutorial, which I just realized was written by Kara Paslay, one of the most creative people in the whole wide world. She shows a really cool technique to make these circles, involving wax paper and an iron. Good times!

What do you think, is this a go for your home too? Have a great day everyone!
