A savvy shopper has revealed how she created a beautiful high-end wall lamp to brighten up her hallway with an unlikely purchase from Kmart.

Australian mother Janika, who bears the name Mood Collective on Instagram, shared the clever hack with her followers, using a $5 speckled hanging wall planter as a wall sconce.

“Okay, this one is for the renters and those who have a dark area of ​​their home but no outlets! That’s right – no wiring needed!’ she wrote and posted a series of images online.

The speckled detail and matte finish matched Janika’s ceramic decor perfectly and increased its appeal.

Similar designs from alternative brands can cost up to $200-40 times the price of the Kmart buy.

Before mounting the plant on the wall, she stuffed it with bubble wrap and placed a “cheap” puck lamp inside.

Luckily she already had a nail in the wall to fasten the planter to, but Velcro can be used as an alternative for those who rent.

‘Turn it on… and voila! Best of all, you can use them outside, too,” she said.

Hundreds flooded the comments to the post, praising the simple idea which is perfect for those looking for a budget-friendly alternative.

‘Love this! Such a cool idea and looks amazing,” one person wrote.

“So smart, this is such a great hack,” added another, a third said, “I’m seriously doing this.”
