How to make a rice knife block with free building plans

I've been wanting to build this project for a long while. We're not too fancy in our house. We don't have a full set of matching knives in a beautiful, custom knife block. We have a random assortment of hand-me-downs and Ikea specials. I'd seen knives stored in rice before and thought making a custom box would be the perfect solution.

How to Make a Solar Mobile Chandelier

How to make a solar powered, West Elm inspired mobile chandelier

I've been in love with the Mobile Chandelier from West Elm for a long while. I've been scheming of a way to make my own for months. I was walking through the garden center of Walmart last week and I discovered  these. 

So, if my idea worked, not only would I have my West Elm knock off, but I could hang a chandelier over my patio without having to run new electrical. 

Good news. It totally worked! I love it and if you scroll down, you can learn how to make your own solar powered mobile chandelier.
