I'm having a hard time finding electrical lighting that is affordable. Since I've wired the dollhouse, it seems silly to not use working lights! I need a couple sets if sconces - 1 for the dining room and 1 for the living room. I decided to try and make some.

I used balsa wood as the base, poked a hole for the wiring then glued on some lace.

Next I painted the whole thing gold.
I glued on some gold jewelry findings which will hold my light bulb.
You can buy a 2-pack at Hobby Lobby for $3.99 and it comes with a long cord.
The bulbs can screw out and you can be replacement bulbs.
Here's what it will look like with the bulbs in.
I'll probably make a small shade for them to cover them.
